The Sinking Ship

 

Image

Frozen beneath the ocean

Lost in a world of cold

Down down he goes

Both hands above his sinking head

Frozen fingers in search of his love

A sunken ship

A freezing night

Filled with disaster and screams

Voices wailing in desperation

Bodies floating in chaos

Pieces of our once loved ship everywhere

This abyss was dreadful to the living

Down down she went

A plunge to the heart of the ocean

A loud cry she gave

The deafening sound drowned their cry

Down below she went

Stealing the beats of many hearts

The cold won the fight

The Olympians won again

And down below did the Titan go again

In a place…I found

Image

 

In a place of none and nothing

I found something

In a place of lack and scarcity

I found abundance

In a place of poverty and indigence

I found wealth

In a place of war and conflict

I found peace

 

 

In a place of sorrow and mourning

I found joy

In a place of sickness and affliction

I found health

In a place of barrenness and impotence

I found fruitfulness

In a place of loneliness and desolation

I found company

 

In a place of no you

I found you

WHY

Image

 

 

Why walk without God, when you can walk with God

Why live life without God, when you can live a life with God

Why dance for man, when you can dance for God

Why sing for man, when you can sing for God

Why worry, when you can pray to God

Why struggle, when you can ask God

Life is simple

Why complicate it
