To drown or to swim

I was drowning but taught myself how to swim

I had all the tools I needed locked somewhere within

It was hard to breathe, to move, and to be

But finally, the ocean released me; free.

I was emerging stronger and brighter than before

I fought hard until I reached the safe shore

The change didn’t happen over night, and I am afraid it will not last;

But there is light, even though I remember the past.

I am afraid to rise and to fall; to lose it all

There is a crack in the wall; and right now, it is still small

But someday, I will be freed of my mind and not hiding within

Although I know well that to drown is easier than to swim.
