I am a ship

I am a ship, lost and caught in a wave

I am a ship, it’s sail worn thin and tearing

I am a ship, lacking a crew 

I am a ship, who’s rat lines are cut

I am a ship,  who’s anchor went missing

I am a ship, it’s figurehead unrecognizable

I am a ship, who was once the shining red of a setting sun

I am a ship, filled with promises of new land

I am a ship, who’s Hull is flecked with holes

I am a ship, and I am sinking.
