There's a boat in front of me, but no water. It's the only mode of transportation available for me to travel the long distance it takes to get to you. I can walk, but it will take too long and I might not make it in time. All I have is this boat. It's like this, my whole life, I'm tempted to say. Story of my life. An encompassing sentence to express distress and resignation. Like: I hate my life. But no, if this boat is all I have, there's another choice. I can choose not to come to you.
