On and on the vessels sail
Against the ocean tide.
Though storms bring thunder, wind and hail
The ships will not abide.

For they are driven by brave men
That long ago lost fear
And now approach the ocean’s den
With boldness they draw near

Is the sea their foe or friend?
When luck grows short, it is well known,
Men shall meet their fatal end.
None can safely sail alone.

How the world does wonder still
Why such men do love the sea
If countless beings it does kill.
Fearless they forever be.

I wrote it for school. Everyone liked it a lot. I wrote it because some of my friends are joining the navy and I know it can get very dangerous at sea. My grandfather was in charge of a ship in WWII
