Sinking Ship (Poetry)


Our life on this world is a sinking ship
These possessions shall stay... when your soul is stripped
When your body shall rot... you are no longer equipped
These possessions shall stay... when your soul shall lift
So elegantly dressed... so carefully groomed
It seems that we're only preparing for the tomb
So consumed with jealousy... filled with hate
Running from karma... awaiting our fate
So consumed with power... doing anything for fame
But when this ship hits the bottom... so does our name
When the ship hits the bottom... so does our brain
Do we retain that knowledge? Or have we learned in vain?
When the rapture shall cease... we will feel no pain
No more clouds... no more rain
Our life on this world is a sinking ship
These possessions shall stay... when your soul shall lift

-Jon Chambers
