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 

deadened 

Bless the souls of those who died 

Upon this ship 

For it sank with grace 

And became a home.
