Blessing for a sinking ship by Austin Lam

May this ship sink with grace,

Return to its maker,

Become a home anew for those living under

Am I one of those souls now?

The darkness of the depths

Appears to surround my eyes

May the corpses bring new life

Upon the dead and


Bless the souls of those who died

Upon this ship

For it sank with grace

And became a home.
