Completed Journey to a Dead Sail: A Poem About a Ship
Breaking through the chambered wall
Past uncharted destiny of schooling creatures
And that of many that kill to eat
Finding only the crystal of the sea.
Too much to notice, not enough light to see
Discovering new adventure further down
Watching only what the dead has conquered before,
Leaving what was to what is.
Creating a life we only dream about
Believing only to fantasize what we may find,
Beating the depths, cancelling prior memories
Only hoping that I find the beauty within these walls.
Compensating for air, traveling further beyond darkness
Losing awareness…..just a little bit farther; waiting.
Dead to the world resting in peace on the bottom
Living in a new world of tranquility.
For I only want to find what I came to visualize,
That simple pearl and crystal of the sea
Shedding the light to a new life
Once living above, now living a new.
Passing the chambered walls
To an all new world
Beauty, home, and resting place,
Creatures find happiness and us…sadness.
No more does that crystal shine,
No more does that wood float,
But living it still is
As a more abstract masterpiece.
The journey is never over.
