The boat with no oars

I was floating on a boat with no oars, allowing the current to carry me wherever it wants. I was initially contented cos I had food to fill my stomach & blanket to keep me warm. But I started to yearn for dry land. And the day came when I finally spotted an island. I happily jumped off the boat but was soon filled with trepidation. I had no inkling what lies beyond. Is it full of wild animals waiting to devour me or is it a whole new wonderful world? I looked back & saw my boat drifting away - the boat carrying food & my security blanket. My first impulse was to run back to it but I forced myself to walk on cos I'd no desire to be adrift anymore.
