Can you Imagine?

Can you imagine what it is to cross an ocean
its like an adventure, risk and fear of the unknown
Like all story begins with hopes and well wishes 
not even they know what lies ahead of us
 
can you imagine what it is to cross an ocean
an ocean of loneliness?
for years you see noting but the horizon
for there it lies the sun on its journey’s end 
 
Yes alas That pale orange mass of ball 
set its course towards its downfall
leaving behind nothing but patches of white clouds
nothing but black bluish scars
 
Can you imagine what it is to cross an ocean
an ocean of darkness? 
for the mighty sea roars, 
Roars again and forgets to calm itself
 
They hear strange songs 
the songs of the mermaids.
 
Can you imagine what happens if we are caught by the pirates 
either you try flee or fight till your last breadth
They say only the bravest of all dares it to cross the ocean
for it is like a wield beast and can never be tamed 
 
Can you imagine what it is to cross an ocean
for days your men are sick on its mightiness 
all they now want is a shore to land 
to drink, to sing , to rejoice & dance.
 
Can you imagine what it is to cross an ocean 
with a fragile ship, a compass and nothing in this vastness
just like a speck of dust 
creaking the iron and its rust moving its way though the dark.
 
Can you imagine what it is to cross an ocean 
where there is only a small beam of hope is alive like a fire in the rain
where you are tired, so as your men
they only want some rest, land and some fresh grain.
 
 
Land ahoy is the million dollar word they would like to hear 
all of them are now praying so that the God’s can hear
telling him one more time you safely reach me to the shore
I will never ever ask from you anything more
 
Can this old man be wise enough to lead them through the path of the unknown  
is this old man’s arms  are wide enough to hold them when they fall
and to keep this fragile fire alive 
so as not to make this voyage futile. 
 
Can he find what he is looking for all his life
nothing  but the very the purpose why  is he alive 
Can he see that New world , the New dawn? 
The land of the  righteousness and the Light of the Sun?
