Sonnet Iii-Ocean Of Life Poem by Yash Shinde

Sonnet Iii-Ocean Of Life

Rating: 4.8

In life's illusion I am lost
Unable to make my boat row
In vast ocean of world's desires and pleasures
I go with the life's flow………………..

Born free yet everywhere in chains,
Life is mine, but not in my control
Bound to chains that don't let me go
Along the path to my dole………….

Tried hard to reach that heaven of peace
The place inhabited by my lord
but Janus closed its pearly gates,
and took away the bosom of my god…………..

and the ocean swallowed me, like a clod
ceased my beats, and hid me under its sod………

It's nice and thought provoking. We row the boat of our life in the ocean of time, but the control is not in our hands.

At 16 you are on a fast track to becoming a gifted poet. Rich with imagery and metaphors and many profoundly written lines- a very advanced write, very good
