I am Titanic

By
The maiden voyage; the greatest ship ever created,

I am ready…yet I am nervous as well…

I am Titanic…


The Olympic could never match my brilliance,
The Britannic lacks my majestic disposition,
I am Titanic…


My elegance and beauty attracted the finest of people,

It was to be a voyage of historical significance…

It was, yet for the different reasons than those initially perceived

I am Titanic…





My People screamed after the collision,
They knew time was short,
I was supposed to be invincible,
I am Titanic…

I am immovable; I am unsinkable,
Maybe that’s why the flares were mistaken for fireworks…
I am Titanic…

Not everybody can be saved, this I know
Panic ensues…women and children first!

I am Titanic…



As lifeboats run out, so does hope…

The mob becomes wreck less and irrational,

The last hope of rescue is washed away by the blood…

I am Titanic…

To the bottom of the Atlantic I sank…
An unexpected, eerie silence follows,
1517 passengers perished that night...
I am Titanic…
