Sink or Swim

Waters churning gathering strength
Believing we are safe
We see is calm, we feel light
As we are slowly being brought into the storm

We do not even notice the turbulence
We barely feel the water beating us
We even miss our tiredness to stay afloat
As we move with the current in our norm

We enjoy the excitement
Of moving freely in a dance
Then the undertow forces us down
Suddenly we are gasping for air

In our confusion the panic sets in
We realize we are sinking fast
In our fears were hopeless
Viciously being tossed in chaos

There comes a time
We got to decide to sink or swim
We can sink with the others in ease
Or we can detach and swim away from the norm
