THE WEIGHTED SHIP

QUOTE:

THE WEIGHTED SHIP A ship, low in the water Weighted down by dread's ballast Plows through the waves Impervious to pain Shrouds frozen Under icy sheets of rain On deck A shiphand loiters Before heading below And looks out across The watery graves Of those who went before Whom he did not know Though they are part of him.
