    Shi ( Death )

    Like the sea pushing and pulling
    Objects and animals alike caught in the current
    Invisible hands catching and culling
    Unseen acts of violence abhorrent

    Wandering hearts get swept aside
    Only the focused and strong will persist
    Longing for more than just to survive
    The urge of the rope, too sweet to resist

    Whispering poetry into the wind
    Hoping it will carry it to needy ears
    Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned
    Love dies cold, hate perseveres
