From Good To Bad - Poem by katie fabrizius

as the cool morning breeze rolled off the ocean
the sailors slowly rise from thier slumber
they gazed at the skies above
their expressions were mournful
the sailors scurrying to get this accoplished

as the bow broke threw the water's surface
childern danced and played
as the hours passed the childern and waves crashed as one
the snickering of the little ones
'stop' the mother yelled as she scolded her child

waves gave another push on the ship
'captian' voices cried 'nothing seems right'
the arms of the mothers wrapped around the childern like eagles protecting their eggs
the grip was almost too tight. Unsure almost
Adrenaline rushed.One finger moved rapidly

the rain came down washing the deck
sailors scurried. women worried
Captian unsteady. women and childern unstable, unsure
the rocking of boats. Rope slipping through metal
the yelling from above was but a whisper now
