The Man in the Sea..


old-man-and-the-sea1

He was a helpless man drifting in the seas,

Thriving on ‘hope’ , to see the land and its trees.

Without any food nor any sleep,

All he could do was to sit down and weep.

He saw many a fish passing by,

Yet, he didn’t want to kill them, he didn’t even try.

He had the gaff, he had the  net,

His hunger overwhelmed him , yet (for the fish) he was never a threat.

Every night and every day,

He read out the gospel of his own dismay,

Every night and every day,

Was nothing new but a painful replay.

Was he like this forever or was this just a change in course ?

Oh no, in his time of glory, he was a  mighty force.

Then, what’s the problem and why isn’t he now ?

What made him shy away and what made him disavow ?

He accounts it to a little fish,

A fish that he liked, loved and that he killed against its wish.

He saw a pain in the fish’s eyes,

Ah, the remorse was incredible, extending vastly into the skies.

He froze, he didn’t do anything except to drift away,

Into the seas of penitence, for he knew he could never defray.

Many a fish now came to him for their own oblation,

For, they felt honored to sacrifice their souls for all his glory and his revelation.

But no, his heart was still serving its sentence,

A sentence of guilt and a death by repentance.

Was there any cure for his pain ?

No one ever knew, maybe God will have to sprinkle on him the ‘forgiving rain’.

He was a helpless man drifting in the seas,

Thriving on ‘hope’ , to see the land and its trees.
