There are the desperate many,
who have chosen to flee the familiar
Only to be swallowed by the hungry ocean waters.
They belong nowhere-
and own passports destined for heaven.
They hang in limbo.
Unable to return to a life they once knew
while blinded by the life they will be denied.
If you are silent,
you will hear their wails.
As they sink into the murky place
between their hopes
and the pain
of their realities.
