Middle Passage by William Wright Jr.

It was a long and torturous way 
In the hulls of beasts
Through the cold and turbulent waves

It was on a thieving wind 
My forefathers wailed and groaned 
In the scorn of their bonds 

It was a plentiful trail 
For the menacing sharks 
All prowling in wait 

It was and remains
The quietest crime 
Engulfed by the sea
By the wrathful abyss

About the Author


William Wright, Jr. is a student from San Diego, California who wields a great passion for language and poetry. He was sixteen years old when he first fell in love with the art form and ever since, he has not deferred from its path. Writing has helped him when he was uncertain of his role in life. The craft brought him comfort when his fears were so immense and they seemed impossible to overcome. To this day he remains committed to writing at least one poem a day, every day, no exceptions. It is a practice that continues to serve him well.
