Breathing Underwater

I keep my head below water whilst I still breathe

Drowning in my sorrows whilst swimming at ease

This deep water is blurring my vision, feeling like I’m stranded at sea

But I still follow the path to shore I’m not sure that I’ll reach.


Every single day the water keeps rising

And no matter how loud I scream the water reduces it to silence,

And the yelps that I keep inside makes the water violent.


I keep breathing underwater with no guidance

The captain of my ship, wrecked by trying.
