If life were an ocean…
Your ship would be your values,
your purpose the wind in your sails.
Your spirit would be your compass
with faith as your telescope.
Your words would be your rudder,
your relationships your crew.
You would steer with your intellect
and navigate by the charts of wisdom.
You would weather the storms of conflict
and face the fierce waves of doubt.
You would fight the tides of disappointment
and avoid the shallows of despair.
You would steer away from the rocks of criticism
and skirt the reefs of deception.
You would visit the ports of experience,
enjoying the journey and adventure.
You would see the distant shores of your dreams
and with persistence reach your destination.
Finally, in realizing your goals,
you would anchor safely in the harbor of contentment.
Are you ready to set sail?
