Treading Carefully



66% of witness accounts state that when someone drowns, they were a strong swimmer.


When you’ve conquered the tide enough times

Nobody keeps a look out for you

Because you’ve already surpassed

What most could fathom

People seem to think courage, infallibility, and indestructibility are synonymous

But all it takes is one sweep of an unsuspecting wave

To pull you under.


Sometimes, I get tired of treadin’

My limbs go numb

I gasp for air

I lose sight of the shore

I fight myself:

Should I call out for a name?

Or just say a prayer?
