The Duality of Water
The waves crashing against the surface,
While the birds chirp in the background.
The warm breeze hits
As the cold water becomes lower and lower.
Soon, the cold water encompasses the body
As the light becomes dimmer and dimmer.
You know the bottom is near
as the seaweed creeps higher and higher.
The hope that once fulfilled the body
Is now as far as the surface of water.
The waves that once created a beautiful energy
Are now a destructive force causing hysteria and harm.
Sadly, the seaweed is now as tight as a seat belt.
Constricting the possibility of any escape.
The water that was once the escape needed from the land,
Has become the demise you were trying to run from.
A glimpse of opportunity has finally arisen.
The grip beginning to loosen up
As the sand below grants the chance of a lifetime.
A chance of freedom from the darkness
that consumed for so long.
