Ship in a Storm

This house has become 
a ship in a raging storm
will its furious waves
restore or deform?
Raising flags
and rising voices
heard amidst 
discordant noises-
the sea water 
sprays tears
fervent fears.
The sky darkens
waves crash 
and hearts thrash 
in a rib cage:
the rib cage 
is this dwelling
this home, 
floating on troubled waters
floating on a sea unknown.
I wonder 
will we fall in 
here on the brink-
will we sink 
or will we swim?
