The Storm at Sea

By Safa Mahmood

It went adrift, adrift, adrift
unbridled and faithful to God
against our single wish

It went up and under
unafraid against the current
bold beneath the thunder

It went sloshing and splashing
along with zephyr whistles
and chaos came crashing

It went to a world unknown
four hearts wishing for the shore
as our bodies far away from home
