Paper boat

Gentle push
by loving hands.
Rhythmic nudge
by docile waters.

Shining sun
to keep it company.
Set sail
carefree.

And then
Wind blew.
Rains lashed.
Currents swept.

Caught unaware
by God's rage
the wet paper boat
fought all night.


And its no more.
Thats right.
For, have you ever heard
paper boats getting lucky?

@amalbose : No, its not that way. when our opponents are obviously much more powerful than we are, we tend to fail. And no magic shall prevent that.
