Fear

Photo by Indira Reddy

There stood a bunch of boats,
Afraid of the sea.
Will the ocean keep them afloat
Or will the boats become debris.

They stood there, patiently waiting
Waiting for an easier path.
They did not heed the ocean’s calling
Coz they feared the ocean’s wrath.

The Ocean had good intentions,
To get them where they wanted to go.
And I must mention,
The Ocean was not their foe.

And as far as I remember
Boats were made to float.
Designed to stay above the water,
Designed to withstand the load.

But they were scared to take the challenge
And thought, what if they fail ?
They didn’t trust their talent
And so, they reaped no gain.
