Life Is A Sailing Ship - Poem by Toshie Nohara

Life is a
Sailing 'ship'
With lots of adventures
It needs a captain
To weather through life's storms
A wrong decision for
A solution by the captain
Through panic
The ship surely sinks like
The Titanic!
But the captain with
Pure determination
Will steer the 'ship' to
Her destination
To greener pastures
New places,
Admire interesting faces

Life is running a big
Race
Trying to meet one's
Satisfaction
Trying to prove one's
Quality of
Life
And overcoming any
Hardship
Without loosing
friendship
By appreciating other's
advice or
Avoiding secrets and
Lies
Whether one's ship is
Big or small
Her master should
Stand tall
Without loosing
Confidence
So having perseverance is
Evidence of facing
The world with
Hope
With tears or
Laughter in
One's own ship to
Cope
When one is
The only master
Charting the
Course of life
Accepting the
Adventure with a
Smile for a bright
Future

Life is a
Sailing 'ship'
With lots of adventure
Life is patience,
Don't be mad
Life is faith
So be glad
Life is endurance
That's a fact
Life is love
Remember that
For God is Love
That's true
Life is a
Journey we go
Through
Life is believing and
Trusting in
God from above
Life is God's
Gift
To be treasured with
Daily thanksgiving.
