Voyage Through Life


One ship sails east and another sails west

With the self-same winds that blow.

Tis the set of the sail and not the gale

Which determines the way they go.

As the winds of the sea are the ways of fate

As we voyage along through life,

Tis the act of the soul that determines the goal,

And not the calm or the strife.

-Ella Wheeler Wilcox

This is a beautiful reminder that strife is only temporary and does not ultimately effect our life. Fantastic picture and poem.

P.S. Found you through Hillary's blog.
