Your life is a boat

Wandering the desolate seas.

Sunshine

Stillness

But then nothing.

Until the heavens open.

Lightning strikes

Thunder cracks.

The seas waves grow and grow

Hitting your mast,

What guides you

pulling you on your right path.

From beneath

In the dark deep waters

Lurks a demon.

A demon so big

It will swallow you whole.

Sink you

until your last dying breath.

The Kraken

Your worst enemy.

It will wrap its deadly tentacles around you.

Squeeze away your pleading scream.

The Kraken?

It's your life's worst enemy.

Death.
Image by Bob Eggleton - The Kraken (one of my favorite pieces of The Kraken.)

you really should tag the original artist for this, its unfair not to. it was obviously a lot of work for them.
otherwise, nice work. well done.

Many a time I have used images for my poetry on Deviant Art and have stated that the image was not my own. I forgot to add it on this time. Thank you for noticing and bringing it to my attention.

Thank you for appreciating my poem though. That means a lot.

it is an amazing poem! i really enjoyed it...
i was just really surprised because i thought it was just a pic at first.
its cool, sorry if i seemed like i was down on you about it, i just really feel its important that credit always goes where it should... the internet is full of people stealing other peoples stuff...
again, im not saying you are, but im always on guard for it because there are so many doing it.

I fully agree with you, credit should go to the original person who created the artwork. I just simply forgot to reference the artwork in the description. Fixed now! =)

Thank you very much for appreciating my poem though. =)
