“But it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it'll shine the clearer." ~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

"For I know the plans I have for you...plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” ~ Corrie Ten Boom


Rushing, swirling, engulfing water
Covering all as panic grasps the crew.
The icy sea performing human slaughter,
There is nothing we can do.
Frantically, the captain rushes women
And children into boats, small and teeming
With desperate people. We have fallen
Deeper into plunging waves, screaming
Into the dark, empty night, no one is near
As fate paints the portrait of death.
To all, hope is lost. Surrounding us is fear.
But wait! The ship has stopped; we catch our breath.

Then deep, black darkness surrounds all. We can't resist

As life slips from our corpses, sinking down to the abyss.

eeck, creepy. I like it though- good job. I'm a big fan of rhyme scheme, and you've got that here. Titanic is one of my favorite movies; I'd love to go diving and see the "Unsinkable Boat" myself.
