MY NEW HOME

 

The tempest rages, the waves they heave

Like a paper boat, I am tossed by the sea.

“Man overboard,” I hear them shout,

To a vicious, watery end, no doubt.

 I pitch and whirl, rise then plunge,

By this roaring monster, I am flung.

They battle for survival at my helm,

But against this enemy, they are overwhelmed.

 

Their shouts, their cries become drowned out,

I feel their bodies being thrashed about.

They have lost the fight, I am now alone,

And like a feather, I am tossed and blown,

By the navigator of my destiny,

So I surrender to its supremacy.

My fate is sealed, I’ll join the crew,

On the sea bed, in waters blue.

 

My structure is shaken by a sudden jolt,

As I find I’ve come to a sudden halt,

On a grassy destination, my new domain,

The sun’s gentle rays, dry my skeletal frame.

Fragrant floras, a sight to behold,

Adorn nature’s garden, my new home.

The colourful blooms, so delicately

Honour the lives that were lost at sea.
