The Storm

The sail rises and falls
As a strong wind blows
Tossing our boat
On the stormy sea

Dark clouds hover above
Casting a shadow over
Shimmering blue waters
Like a grey and dark monster

The reefs and rocks endure
The wrath of the sea
Like faith they stand witness
To the raging, stormy sea

The surging waves resound
Like a restless teenager
And like his temper tantrums
The wind cries reach a crescendo

Finally the storm abates
And a calm descends
Like a tired son falling sleep
On hearing mothers lullaby

Our hearts sing prayers of gratitude
As we make a final dash to shore
Clinging on hope and faith
And heroic stories to relate
