Stormy Seas



~~~

Anyone can steer when the seas are calm

And I pray your days filled with breezes just

But when the gales begin to fill your sails

Is when we find what is best in us

~~~

When whitecaps wrinkle the glassine surface

And strong winds blow against our lives

We must find the strength of right purpose

And work to determine what survives

~~~

Tossed and turned through a sleepless night

Plagued by the storms without warning

We must hold the helm ever so tight

If we hope to see the next morning

~~~

Set your eyes upon the horizon far

And lash yourself to the sturdy rail

Find the power of who you surely are

For you were always meant to sail

~~~

  1. Anyone can steer when the seas are calm. Indeed. So well expressed!

  2. I have been sailing the stormy sea for a while, and it’s very tough, but it also gives me the strength to steer as far as possible. This poetry is a reminder of storms and the courage to sail, another motivating work Brad.

    I interpret your piece as way beyond sailing. I think it’s meant to be a metaphor for life.
