THE SINKING SHIP !


The fleeting ship drifts  swiftly in the ocean,

 majestically wading through the mighty waves,

facing the winds vigorously ,

heading towards a  faraway destination…

 

The gigantic mast blows with the  wind,

navigating the direction ,

equilibrating the speed,

on the voyage … in search of the horizon,

where  sun and the earth meet .

 

over the smoothly moving ship,

 suddenly  grey clouds  hover,

darkening the path …

visibility becomes blurr…

 

In the storm of the raging fears,

the ship of life  quivers,

apprehending to get abandoned ,

The belief becomes shaky and wavers…

 

How to escape the unknown tempest,

what to  hold onto in the darkest,

no light to guide or steer the wheel…

The mind becomes pessimistic.

 

When the last thread of hope breaks,

when knowledge dissolves in the rage,

a twinkling light flashes across,

A lighthouse is seen in the midst of the waves…

    Read this some time back and thought you might appreciate …

    “Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,–
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. ”

    –Alfred Lord Tennyson
