Thank you for the Post a Day Challenge and the Daily Prompt!

This is my radical new realization that my body is mine. She is me, but I am still a passenger here in this life.


Passenger by Gwen Smith


I am a Passenger
On a ship
In a sea unknown.
I wake and steer toward
Distant shores
I have never seen.

I am a Dreamer
In a scene
I did not create.
I know I am not home
Nor awake
But lessons must be learned.

I am this Body.
She is me.
We walk together
I see her radiance
In the dark
And I know that I

Am just a passenger.
