The Ship Of Life

We sail the universe, drifting slowly among the stars, unaware of the larger universe around us. And like ships, we encounter gales, and heavy seas, but somehow the ship of life survives.


The rolling sea

The howling gale

The shore alee

The stricken sail

The crashing waves

The struggling ship

No God who saves

But Devil’s whip

The ship is rent

No mercy gives

Nor winds relent

And yet she lives
