This brick wall I tried so hard to build, is tumbling down. - Me (AliceAngel)

If drama were vodka, everyone at my school would be drunk. - Chloe, one of my friends.

The stormy night,
The wish for flight.
On this boat for adventure,
On this boat for misadventure.

Iceberg struck,
Everyone having bad luck.
Everyone is going down,
No one wanting to drown.

The ship is drowning,
The people are sinking.
Most won’t survive,
But that’s just what happened.

The Titanic is in our memory,
Everyone back then not knowing they were in jeopardy.

The author's comments:
Earlier, before i started writing this, i had been thinking, and i came up with something that i thought was really good. I thought of "The ship is drowning, the people are sinking." I was actually thinking of adding "their bodies full of lead" at the end of it. But while i was writing this poem, i forgot about it.
