Life is a ferry tale

Time is a ferry ⛴️

The world is it’s sea 🌊

And we’re mere passengers ⛴️

Drifting from birth to death ⚰️

Days of plain sail⛵

Days of storm ⛈️

Days some fall victim to the ferocious beasts of the ocean 🌀

Or the days pirates cart away our carriage 🏴‍☠️

Days the kraken visits, and lays wreck in it’s wake 🐙

Days the ship gave, rocking under the turbulent waves 🌊 of the ocean

And we fight to mend the leaks 🚱

Scared to house water in our lungs 😰

For the fear of death? ⚱️

But death is the destination! 🛬

Why do we fight it? 🥊

For the journey, brief or protracted, is certain of a destination 🛬

Aboard or ashore, the fate (destination) is fatal ☠️

The uncertainty of the hereafter is what humbles 🛶

    It was perfectly splendid.
    I especially liked the “why do we fight it” bit.
    Why indeed? Humans struggle with the fact that our fate isn’t entirely under our control. Try as we might, it’s an undeniable & unchanging fact but we still struggle & challenge fate.
    Why do we fight it? Is it out of sheer stubbornness, being in denial regarding the inevitable, or is it simply because challenging fate gives a certain sense of control even if that sense is just a figment invented by the mind to provide relief (albeit fleeting)..
    Why indeed.

    Nice piece boss!
