Caught At Sea - Poem by Kellsey Hartmann

High winds and waves
have place in this storm
raging so violently at sea
so out of the norm

The boat rocking
to-and-fro
caught in this storm
nowhere to go

A wave crashes down
splashing across the deck
a few aboard give in
exposing, offering their neck

'Have me now! '
no hope they've kept
except to be drug
down to the depths

The boat rocks violently
no standing on feet
all sailors knocked down
accepting defeat

They all cry for home
crying love to far off people
a few praying, wishing
they'd been under the steeple

Slowly, the rocking less violent
the storm rains slow at last
they realize the storm
is beginning to pass

Hope is restored
a few sailors shout
letting loose their relief
letting thankfulness ring out

The storm has passed
and all goes on as norm
not much is said
of that frightening storm

When all seemed hopeless
all gave up the fight
yet hope rang out
with the sun's warm light

So close to disaster
yet what was learned
'what afterlife' the wondered
'have I earned? '

All think of life more
and who they ought to be
their lives forever changed
that horrible day at sea
