breathe

Some people still try
To swim when
They’re drowning,
The trick is
To simply stop struggling
And breathe.

  1. Been there, done that, a couple of times, actually. Just let go and something seems to drag you to shore. Seriously…I’ve almost drowned several times and something saved me all three times. So in reality, or metaphorically, your poem works perfectly.
