A crash and bang! A crash, bang, boom!
The eerie sounds of pending doom.

A wayward boat on choppy seas,
The hunger pangs, the black disease.

My face is bloody, stained with tears
And scarred with ever mounting fears:

Will I reach land? Be cast away?
Or live to see another day?

Will constant aching ever cease?
For all I want is light and peace.

Shred the sails now! Cut the tether!
No more dark and stormy weather.

Reviewed by Elisabeth Barstowe 6/6/2010
Well written. The wheel of life is continously turning and what goes down always comes up again eventually.
Reviewed by Paul Judges 6/5/2010
Nicely composed, Marla
Reviewed by Regis Auffray 6/5/2010
I find this poem worthy of much more than a single reading; symbolically suggestive in meaning expressed. Love and best wishes to you, Marla,

Regis
