For those struggling to get through a difficult time, fighting the storms and surviving.
That little boat in the ocean

So small in the sea’s expanse

With its simple harmonic motion

Insignificant, at first glance

The Mother Moon shows her illumination

Advancing the sea’s ebb and flow

And that little boat in the ocean

Did sway and dip and blow

It’s port and bow and transom

Struggle with every wave

The ocean’s ruthless ransom

That little boat, so brave

And its little mast that stood proudly

Splintered in the thundering skies

The crackling break roared loudly

And the little boat nearly capsized

It rode the storm with ardour

It battened its gunwales

That little boat, the commander

Through treacherous angry gales

It’s bow and port and starboard

All damaged from the storm

That little boat in the ocean

Had truly outperformed

It’s tiny frame, trivialized

Its greatness was unseen

But that little boat in the ocean

Birthed a great marine

For the storm that came to challenge it

Was regression towards a mean

And it sailed the calmer shores to find

It’s paradise, Evergreen
