If the world was a ship,

and human race, the crew.

wont we sail United to reach the shores,

however difficult the winds may be?


If love was our captain,

and compassion, the guiding spirit.

wont we Easily navigate our inner oceans

while we pass through the wild seas?


If just needs listed our supplies,

and sharing was our golden rule,

wont we all be Satiated without the plunder

even if our desires went unbound and lose?


If the present defined our course,

and horizon in sight was our terminus,

wont we Happily achieve what we set out to?

For each passing wave will be a challenge anew!


And If the world was really a ship,

and our reasons were our truth,

wont we all yearn Together for a common shore?

For Parity defines true virtues!


With Love

I am doing a 30 Days series of Poems on ‘Humanity’.. This is my poem for Day 3

It is inspired by NaPoWriMo‘s prompt of writing ‘a Sea Shanty’. I hope you all like it.
