Time Is An Endless Ocean - Poem by Daya Nandan

Time is an endless ocean that is simply so vast,
Where the currents are rapid and ever so fast,
Where we swim in a period between birth and death,
Trying to live things up until our very last breath,

Each of us have a fixed time frame to complete our swim,
Before our bodies give way to death, a fate so grim,
Because of that the direction we swim is truly essential,
For that determines if we can reach our true potential,

Happiness and goals to reach before the end of our swim,
Achieved by our hard work and strength of each limb,
Choosing the right destination is often the hardest part,
For it is a battle weighing choices of the mind and heart,

Reaching your destination is often a challenge so great,
For the ocean is filled with dangers, well disguised bait,
Predators and distractions, many hurdles and traps,
Overwhelming challenges that can just make you collapse,

As you beat each one you get closer to your destined place,
Steps closer to the happiness you are destined to embrace,
But remember that the swim is short and only for so long,
So work smart and work hard and become a swimmer so strong,

Each life has a turn to swim in the ocean of time,
A swim to embrace life's magical rhythm and rhyme,
So make yours an epic swim that is truly worthwhile,
So at the end you can return from swimming with a smile.
