Lost Souls-poem

Underneath the sea
are souls lost
tormented
and broken

Gone are the days
when they can come home
and feel the love
of a once golden promise

Now all they can do
is lament
wail
and yearn
as one long lost
and forgotten soul.

P.S

There has been some outrage in my home country about our young mariners who have sailed across the ocean and was never seen coming home. There are a lot of tell tales about this, but whatever the story behind, one thing is for sure; someone is weeping over a lost love one, a lost brother, a lost father, a lost friend, and a lost hardworking citizen.

This poem is for all of them out there. .May they find peace knowing that they are loved and will never be forgotten.

Hush Now

20180907_121400

Keep still
amidst chaos and turmoil
all through the roaring thunder
and all through the rising tide
rest your weary heart
like an ocean easing up
after a storm
hush now.
