The Sea of Life. A Poem for #Prose4T and #The Prompt.

The Sea of Life

Where there was once nothing but storms
Mounting waves and angry winds
Where all who sailed in this ship
Had to hang on for dear life

Where there once was nothing but despair
All hope seemed lost
Where Davy Jones’s locker
Seemed too close at hand

We took control of this vessel
We weathered the storm
We rode the waves
We never gave up

Now we enjoy the tranquillity
We made it through
Became closer, stronger
Thanks to the sea of life

    My own personal understanding of this is – going through a storm makes you closer. And generally, it’s so true. Thanks for hosting #prose4t

    Sometimes we need the stormy waters to appreciate the tranquil calm that follows. Beautiful Vicky x #Prose4T

    Making it through the turbulent times is so rewarding. A lovely journey is described here. I always have to remember when I’m in the eye of the storm that it’s part of it and I will look back one day and see the whole journey not just the crap part. #prose4t

    Aww, I hope the waters stay calm and the breeze keeps your sails filled.
