Random Verses


Care

We have to care enough to be our best
We have to dare enough to be that now
Today’s work decides tomorrow's outcome

strength

Trees striped bare naked
Of fruits, flowers and leaves
To face the frigid winter
Intense loss gives renewed strength
To start over in life again

Caution

Highway is no ocean
Yet many lives are lost
In reckless motion
Drive your four wheels
With caution.

Fate

Fate can bless you
By default or curse you
By default if it chooses so.


Your Ship

You are the captain of your ship
Steer the wheel with caution
Understand the power and limits
Of what your ship can do
Bear in mind the effects of wind
Current, swell and momentum

    A Thought provoking poem. I loved all the verses. Very true said in short and sweet words. We have to be our best, cautious in all the things you do, its the inner strength that help us to withstand anything that comes in our life, accept the fate, whatever it gives by default. Steering of life is in our hands, one has to drive with caution, using ones logic, tactics, foresight, insight....Loved reading each valuable verses. Beautiful way you have presented it. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Our fate alone in our hands, best if we steer the course with caution....for each is to answer the consequences of their own actions. A lovely reminder herein. PEACE (Report) Reply

    We have to care enough to pace ourselves and not overexerting oneself depleting all our energy and conserving our strength using caution and wisdom along the way with life's journey where we choice the courses that dictate our fates steering our earthly vessels(ships) along the way.

    What a creative write. I quite enjoyed it!

    Water, water everywhere but not enough to steer. One needs a flowing heart full of joy, and moderation in the steerage, to overcome the towering waves. I admire all these apothegms. (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
