I know this isn't too good-It's just an insight-or a thought, that the people onboard slave or convict ships would have thought about their lives..

The dark waters crash below

As the dark sky floats above me

This darkness that spreads, friend or foe?

It suffocates my soul at sea

 

The night falls and this grief

has crept into the air

my morals, my stands, my beliefs

Have crumbled in despair

 

This dark puts tears to my eyes

but thats only part of the cost

This dark converys a message, which lies

the truth; that I have lost

 

The ones for whom I care

have left me with no hope

I'm trying to hold, but I can't bare

I honestly cannot cope

 

But this darkness has a cure

a new path to be free

to bring peace to my mind, and pure

serenity within me

 

This cures not hard to find

It lies under my feet

just one jump; I'll leave behind

The pain, I can't repeat
