Lifeboats

Life Boat Station,Selsey

on lifeboats floating in the moon light
filled with people,
desperation heightens,
slouched strangers become friends,
hearts of granite
are cleansed and transformed.

They watch
the screws of the cheap wood
spin into the air,
while the ship goes down
and turns to ash.

Their new obsesion -survival.
Their new revolution - hope.

Once on land,
 their gratitude is immense,
their wasted days spend in ocean waters is
a lesson for all on the power of hope and faith.
