Drowning – a poem

The water rises as sure as day

It’s unforgiving, to my dismay

I kick and swim for my escape

Which only leads to more debate


Do I stay the course along the stream

Feeding off my big dream

Allow the current to carry me

As far as I can’t see


Should I swim back to the anchored boulder

Rely on my trusted shoulders

Hold on for dear life

For whoever will realise

That I need their help to stay alive


Or should I brave the storm and swim to shore

Going somewhere I’ve never been before

Trust my legs that are yet to be tested

In the hope that they will not be bested
