i set off on a voyage

I set off on a voyage to discover the world
But fate was cruel
I cast off on a sunny morning
But duty steered me back to my mooring

I set off on a voyage to seek adventure
But my ship lost her anchor
I wanted to sail on the high seas
But love brought me to my knees

I set off on a voyage I thought was well charted
But rough weather and large rocks I encountered
I launched my ship at high tide
But misfortune wrecked my vessel and my pride
