Sonnet: Life’s Ambitions

If Life's a ship at sea with rafts and sail;
Our ambitions, the crew who steer it through;
And chance comes as a Wind or mighty gale,
That gives us success or our waterloo.

How must our Captain, Mind order his crew?
'The ship could sink, So, jump aboard, some men',
Keep ready the life-boats for saving few;
The rest can pray to God for quick haven.

Control, we must our desires, in life,
Our ambitions, need not be successful;
Life's safety first is what we choose in strife,
On Doomsday, soul must not be still sinful.

We aim to do the best we can on earth,
But ultimately, we aim for God's Mirth.

by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Very apt descriptions of a thick humid heat- -the lady is impressive
The strength of wind is immense. Requesting it to turn to either side is the theme of the poem and it is so beautiful and awesome
