An Ocean Full of Battles
By: Nathan Cox
Life is an ocean full of battles.
Sometimes the waters are calm and peaceful.
You drift effortlessly without fear or dread.
Floating serenely, basking in the warm rays of the sunshine.
Then a storm may suddenly arise from the depths.
The waves pound against you and the waters overtake you.
They knock you down as you struggle to rise above them.
Battering your vessel, sometimes shattering your hopes and dreams.
Then slowly the tide turns and the cold waters abate.
Allowing you to regain your footing and to trudge toward the shore.
Faithfully pushing you along with its warm currents.
Endlessly carrying you to your final destination.
