Double Meaning

She lived at bay for years at end

No one to hold no friend of men

All around just a swift breeze

How sad it is for her to be at ease

Oh no one knows her sorrows

A ship in harbor wallows

A bitter fear that follows

Oh why oh why is she hollow

No one can see her they don’t trust her

They say she’s unsafe but haven’t sailed her

Why can’t we all just stop and be polite

Holding on to the past is all she has

No one to pick her up

Everyone has torn her down

Old and battered never went to sea

Checking out time is up

Her sail has lowered only now to be lifted up

He just walked past and climbed on

Never had a friend and now she sees

Not all are bad but, good is rare as can be

She’s finally being used for what she was made for

No more flaws she sees a new ship in the mirror

A new woman is what she is

A new friend is what she has

A new meaning to life her dream

 

To a port, she parked on for years

She isn’t taken for granted

She isn’t being abused

Now they see her but before not being used

Being used for her purpose now they see the good in her

A ship at harbor was not her purpose nor her full potential

Being at sea was her new home

Soon she would be beautiful again

No, not again that ruined her the first time

She wants to stay in the city that’s her home

Unknown seas she sails through

No friend of man was how she went through

How sad is that till he came by

She was ready to give up and say goodbye

Not her true meaning but what they made her

How she came about and overcame failure

Now as they say a ship in harbor may be safe

Not the true meaning nor what it’s built for

But how she sees herself now is more.
