The Swim

​Failing 

Flailing

I struggle against the tide

Exhausted from fighting the relentless waves

My mind tells me to resist 

But I have nothing left
Depleting 

Defeating

I surrender to the forceful turbulence 

Resolved to perish in the great current 

My body tells me I will drown

But then I float
Calming 

Calling 

I relax in submission to the powerful sea

Connected with the vastness of the ocean

My spirit is comforted

And I am free
~S.D.
