Life's Seven Seas

The sails are raised
upon the ship
"Unknown,"
to travel slowly on
life's seven seas.
I look upon such
things as I am
shown,
in hopes to solve
life's little
mysteries.

I now am sailing
with a gentle
breeze-
to learn of what I
can until I'm grown;
so I can handle life
with greater ease.
The sails are raised
upon the ship
"Uknown."

There's waves I find
in life that have
been blown,
upon my ship by
other ones decrees.
My skills at sailing
these rough waves
have grown-
to travel slowly on
life's seven seas.

The shores I look
upon are laced with
trees,
their colors looking
like they have been
sewn
by angels with
embroidery degrees.
I look upon such
things that I am
shown.

The work I do
sometimes I will
bemoan,
but with it I have
gained such
victories!
I seek a light that
never has been
shown,
in hopes to solve
life's little
mysteries.

Sometimes these
oceans seem like
they will freeze,
still other nights
it seems I sail
alone.
It's then I get down
on my hands and
knees,
To pray to God
because He's on the
throne.
The sails are
raised.
