Abandon Ship

Dire circumstances
Utter chaos
“Abandon ship!”

Some say, find a new vessel,
But that feels like mutiny.
Some say, give it up,
but that’s like giving up eating.

I don’t want
to jump ship.

Not yet.

I’m going down
with this ship.

Maybe I’ll migrate
and readjust,
and maybe not quite fit in.

Maybe I’ll go solo
and continue growing
and maybe lose touch.

I’ll find something
eventually.
Something always
comes up.

But in
the meantime…

I don’t want
to jump ship.

Not yet.

I’m going down
with this ship.
