Rise of the Sinking Sailor
Rise of the Sinking Sailor – Jack Crowe
Pessimistic thoughts can surrender,
The blissful sun illuminating a hidden
Existing darkness could dim to give into
Providing people with their lighter days.
The gold of the star melts to offer peace,
To ourselves, our minds, our thoughts and
emotions stored within.
Inner bodies of war can find their mercy,
To the blessing of a smile, directed
A reflection once insecure and unfound,
Lifts its head to see the clouds.
Both feet lifting, the sky moving closer,
Turning back is discouraged, moving
ahead is a gift.
It was the words and essence of a God,
Telling us to stop our hurting and remove
Exposure to the light was all we ever
And these people introduced us to it.
My superhero is not defined by their
powers, their build, their medals,
But more by their heart and kindness.
It’s simply their smile, their warmth, their
And the hope that they provide.
My unknown superhero distinguished the
To let my dreams run wild.
Optimistic ideas and pursuits of the
impossible filled my imagination,
But thanks to you, they now are indeed
This hero rose the sails,
And ultimately lifted
The sinking sailor.
