 To Ride The Unicorn - poems about life - by pegesus unicorn

This Boat to Hell

we all travel the same route
we stand and watch and wait
we feel the same agony and cry
we ask ourselves why me why them
we all sail this boat to hell

there is no port landings for us
there is only a one way trip
there are no gaiety only sorrow and pain
there comes the time when pain overwhelms
we all sail this boat to hell

i ask myself how could this happen
i look at all the shallow eyes and weep
i feel the pain as tears flow down my cheeks
i know there is no winning but losing hurts
we all sail this boat to hell

for every port we enter some disappear
you sail randomly with no joy or no hope
there never goes a happy cruise only despair
i look as we all shed the same tears
we all sail this boat to hell
