Life is an ocean of endless strive...
The Ocean of LifeLife is an ocean with two big shores:
One is birth the other is death.
One is a joy, the other we dread.
All that's within are the waters of life:
Sometimes calm, sometimes turbulent,
Sometimes in ebb, sometimes in flow
Sometimes it's fast; sometimes it's slow,
Sometimes it's drab, sometimes aglow,
At times we swim with the current,
At times against the flow...
At times we hold on fast to it,
At times we let it go...
Sometimes it's all energy,
Sometimes, limp it goes...
But, deep within,
if we choose to go
into the Sea of Life,
Dive and delve in the seabed
there is a treasure trove,
There is a whole world within,
Sometimes to precious pearls akin,
If we dive deep within,
Search for them hard and long,
We might find those pearls of wisdom,
Rubies of passion,
Sapphires of desire...
If we persevere
The search and strive
Is well worth the try,
And vice versa too-
The find is well worth the search,
the endeavour, the cravings...
Life is an ocean
Of endless strive...
