Sunken Treasure - Poem by Aram Stefanian

As your vessel submerged into the ocean
You felt inexorable water pressure
Headering deeper, you neglected caution
It was your top aim to raise sunken treasure

When the ship reached the bottom of the sea
It sprung a leak, and raging water flowed inside
Alarmed, you threw yourself at god's mercy
To pull out all the stops before you curled up and died

Astonished by a familiar vision from the past
In dark, moist utero you found yourself again
A bleak prospect of being reborn inflamed blind trust
Life was your only treasure, going down the drain
