A poem that talks about those many of us who struggle to get to new fortunes… Some who hungry oceans swallow. Others who simply sink into the murky place of despair… A lovely poem. Deep, thoughtful and can be viewed from a million angles.
There are the desperate many,
who have chosen to flee the familiar
Only to be swallowed by the hungry ocean waters.
They belong nowhere-
and own passports destined for heaven.
If you are silent,
you will hear their wails.
As they sink into the murky place
between their hopes
and the pain
of their realities.
