I've said all of this before, but it was completely ruined with words that didn't come out of my own head. Also, I changed the context. I said "Enough of this #&&%ty romantic crap, lets turn it into something more." Enjoy.
Belly to the sun,
I laid on this boat
with my finger and thumb
plugging termite holes.
I heard someone mention
we were misguided somewhere.
Well, the water was still
and we sure as hell weren't there.
No wind to push,
no waves to sway,
just our imaginations saying ,"We were born this way!"
So most of us jumped ship
and let the boat take on water,
swimming with half the energy it took to paddle.
