Lighthouse Beacon (Poetry by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poetry I had written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

  • Like a ship with a broken ship mast,
  • I drift far and farther,
  • without seeing a way home.
  • Like a ship is lost at sea,
  • I drift from one faith to another,
  • without a firm belief.
  • Where is the definite answer?
  • Which can tell me the way home.
  • Knock, knock, but nobody has an answer.
  • Here I stand on a ship with a broken mast,
  • peeking over the horizon with self delusional doubts,
  • only to confirm the lighthouse beacon isn’t there.
  • Just like a looming storm tortures a seafarer,
  • mentally taxing on unforgiving, deadly sea,
  • I, seafarer, fear the unknown.
  • All alone on a ship with a broken mast,
  • enduring the massive tosses of unforgiving sea waves,
  • I grab faithfully onto whatever, whenever, whatever.
  • Without an anchor,
  • a ship with a broken mast,
  • is sure to be forever lost at sea.
  • Yes, with faith I hold firm,
  • albeit, I drift from one faith to another,
  • forever drifting on unforgiving, deadly sea.
  • Unless I find my way home,
  • here I will forever be,
  • questioning my faith.
  • Knowing faith is to hold firm,
  • not to question but just to have it,
  • ironically, I’ve always questioned it.
  • Knowing of the looming unknown,
  • ironically, I know nothing of it,
  • therefore, faith and I have to be ironic.
  • Like a ship with a broken ship mast,
  • here I drift far and farther,
  • on the unforgiving, deadly sea.
  • To have faith or not isn’t the question,
  • fate has it one must weather the storm,
  • on the unforgiving, deadly sea.
  • Lighthouse beacon is an illusion or not,
  • does it matter?
  • It only matters when one is truly seeing it.
  • So here I am,
  • so there is faith,
  • a fate has it!
