The Wind (poem)

As I moved ahead

Knocked back by this wind

Though my doubts were shed

Brought back in this wind


My future lies ahead of me

And yet this tide won’t let me be

This wind that will not let me free

Just what controls my destiny


Mindful of words said

There within the wind

Promises it said

Hopes it did rescind


A shattered possibility

The tatters that were calling me

The matters I had wished to flee

Of someone else’s memory


So I dove ahead

With my friend the wind

Mindless tears were bled

To myself I’d sinned


Who was this one that once was me

Whose eyes forgotten how to see

Who views the world so timidly

Who used the wind to set him free


Wind now fills my sail

Future I assail

As I meet my tale

Captain should I fail

Hi Mhatter

"Wind now fills my sail

Future I assail

As I meet my tale

Captain should I fail"

Very nice. Sometimes in life we get stuck until we realize we have to live our life and move on.

MHatter, David Bowie always has a unique take on musical themes. He's an appropriate introduction to your poem. In particular, I like the conflicting forces of future, present, tide, will and wind.
