(05) Life - Nothing But A Sonnet - Poem by Lubna S. Khan

When the storms became violent
And the waves dashed against the rock;
The gently sailing ship sank down
And the sea at ship did mock.
The people shout and scream and fight,
But Nature, The great, has its might.

Life too is a gently sailing vessel,
Though with violent storms.
When fate cheats and betrays you,
nothing in life is left but thorns.
Life's rocky path is a challenge grim,
Fight in life against this path.
Be brave and bold; for the timid
Sans hope face the dreadly aftermath!
