Float

Lost in the rushing torrent,

I fight the surface for breath.

Lungs heavy, strained with each gasp.

My body aches for pause,

Arms grovel and grasp fluid.

I plunge myself low, searching for ground.

Further under I sink,

Light blurs above my head.

Legs battle against current, forcing for air.

Relief comes for a moment,

Frantically gulping in life.

Murky end below, waiting for collapse.

Looking towards the sky,

I plea to end this cruel war.

Tired limbs stiffen, stay still for rest.

Weightless in water, I rise,

Drifting atop its violent reach.

Now I’m floating, I surrender to peace.
