Battling the Elements

You cannot silence the elements

It’s not the earth conspiring against the seafarer’s voyage

Weather splits the mood; thou shall not be spared of ambivalence

Deep seas of misunderstood feelings aren’t navigated

Seasoned adventurers just touch the surface

That tempestuous space filled with colossal waves

If fate cannot choose a courageous vessel

The lurking monsters and the wrath of Poseidon’s trident

Once submerged in the cold abysses, there’s no hope

Think of the ill-fated Polybotes and the horror

~Amitav
