A Path Into the Raging Water

by Jason C. Ford

Despite the depths of raging sea
And troubles vast, a man embarks
Upon a quest without the company
Of tools which ward away the sharks.

He starts his quest with tool of steel
Inside a loincloth that prepares to deal
With countless waves arising high
Above the height of watchful eye.

With only loincloth and a simple blade,
The man of strength is diving straight
Into the depths of dangers now displayed
As raging waters that cannot abate.

Although he swims the depths as one alone
With tender muscle that surrounds each bone,
The dangers that confront his chosen goal
Cannot remove his lasting strength of soul.
