Bearings

Wondering who the pilot is
and where is he taking me to?

Through landscapes unfamiliar,
across sand and seas which all
look similar,
down in the valleys
up back alleys
along the streets of destiny
where
I am looking back at me,
I wonder who this pilot is.

In this maze of throw-aways,
take-aways and soak-aways
I feel drained.
