Sinking Ships

The Titanic was
The unsinkable ship. 
Sixteen compartments.
An incredible feat,
A modern engineering marvel,
They said. 
The unsinkable ship,
They said. 


(It sunk.)


People are like the Titanic. 
Whenever I think
One part of my life
Is drowning in water,
I remember,
The other fifteen compartments,
Full of air. 
Safety in sweet oxygen. 
And I go on,
With the drifting tide. 


(I float.)


I am not the Titanic.
I am the unsinkable ship.
