I Have To Cross The Great Ocean


I have to cross the great ocean
with my little boat
which has thousand holes
please tell my friend
how to cross the great ocean

The waves of the ocean are too high
than that of height of mount Everest
thousand Tsunamis are yet to come
please tell my friend
how to cross the great ocean

The little boat gifted to me by my Lord
I do not find another boat
due to my carelessness there is thousand holes
no mechanics can repair it
but i have to cross the great ocean

please tell my friend
how to cross the great ocean

    Dear.Ramesh rai, It is a good poem. How to cross the great ocean? is a good question, Either take some time before you sail to plug the holes or better swim.

    To reach one's destination, there may be so many barriers,
    Not enough resources, not a suitable carrier.
    But one must put the best effort to overcome the hindrance,
    Along with the full confidence and firm determination
    And finally he or she may be crowned with the success.
    With my appreciation for the piece and best wishes. (Report) Reply
