Change The Winds

We cannot change the winds,
but the sails – yes, we can do
to find smooth paths without sins,
to suit direction for me and you.

Life's struggles damage, without mirth,
and we need to move on and find
our true selves and our own self worth,
before we have our peace of mind.

'Seek and ye shall find' is a message sent,
and of that we should gain faith and hope
that our plea has gone to God – and went
to where an answer is found for us to cope.

Another great poem, Colleen - totally agree with the sentiment expressed and you have really done it justice, steve
We cannot change the winds, but the sails – yes, we can do....and change again if we find that the route is wrong...and never be ashamed of changing...just remember everybody does it but never admits it...loved your poem Ma...love...nalini
