Slowly Drifting

How foolish I was. I was so tired I just collapsed in the boat and fell into a deep sleep. Little did I know that the waves were slowly tugging me out to sea. The thunder roared and the wind began to pick up speed. The waves began to grow, splashing into the boat bringing me to a sudden jolt. I awoke disgruntled and confused. I sat up in the boat to observe the scene. Nothing in sight but the tumbling of the waves in the sea. How long had I been sleeping? days? weeks? months?
Fortunately there was a way out. I found a paddle at the end of the boat that I hadn’t noticed before, that seemed to magically appear. I picked it up, and not knowing where I was headed began to paddle.
