I am not drowning today

March 23, 2022

Just getting on the platform

Just grasping that one breath

Maybe I have space now?

How much will this stretch?

My chest is expanding

Is that abundance I feel?

Or is it an illusion

my mind is trying to steal?

I clamber on this platform

to create space for those I love.

But this platform is temporary

and there is nowhere above.

So, I sit.

I absorb.

I take it all in.

I strengthen my core.

For I will be back in the deep

sure enough,

until we find a safe shore.
