Sail close to shore and you'll never reach a foreign land.


Who would sail to the edge of the earth?

For the chance of finding an undiscovered land?

 

 

Columbus sailed. Past storms. Past seas.

Past monsters that he imagined real.

Columbus sailed currents unknown.

And eventually found new land.

 

 

So set your ship. Leave the shore behind. Sail out. Sail far.

And watch for silent death halfway: it's the warm flat sea — a trap. 

It's the middle ground. It's not home. It's not land.

It's a place with no wind to make way. 

 

 

So, sail past those storms.

Sail on through the night.

Sail past that middle ground.

Haul rope. Steer hard. Leave the shore behind.

And find undiscovered land.
