Life is like a ship on a sea



Life is like a ship on a sea, started journey in the morning,
No signs of sea-shore until the evening.
Going and going, pushing up and down on the waves
Sometimes it's a fear of drowning.
Thunderstorms, clouds and the pouring water
Sometimes the bright sun, the clear sky seems better.
Sometimes is the fear of pirates, and the fear of sea animals,
Its not like the fear of a battlefield, nor like a jungle.
Your life is a journey going through certain rules
It's not an easy way; you always have to push and pull.
Sometimes the journey brings you some tragedies,
You lose your control, don't know where are the remedies.
This is how you pass your days to reach the final destination,
Like the ship passing its journey to reach the actual station.
No matter what, you have to pass through all
the obstacles till you reach your final goal.
