into the sea – a poem about a plane crash

Awoken
our lives broken
forever lost
the ‘human cost’

no you

no me

no family

into the sea forgotten

we don’t accept and yet we must
that what we are is human dust


there is no fear

the way is clear

in spirit born, we ride the storm

From Alice – I wrote this following the disappearance of flight 370 Malaysian Airlines. It was a devastating event, and it made me wonder what it’s like to ‘wake up’ after a catastrophic experience.
