Adrift on the ocean, torn apart, swallowed by the waves
I struggle, fight, war against the storm
I am overtaken, pulled under, gasping, grasping for the surface
Life. Storms. Struggle.
a gasp, a breath of air, still alive, still wanting to live, beaten by the storms
the storms have come back, to back, to back
I no longer remember how long I’ve been swimming…
I feel my fear, my strength, my weakness, my vigilance
struggling for breath
struggling for survival
Life. Breath. Survival.
