They say water is life
They say without water we cannot survive
I do not know what is wrong with me
I just cannot seem to blend in
The problem is within?
I can see people breathing under water within this tank
I keep my head up
They always want me to join them within (at least she does)
I am willing, but I just cannot
I’m afraid I might not be like the rest of them
I might drown
So I keep my head up for some air
For how long will I be able to maintain it?
Slowly but surely the water is rising
My lungs are opening up to a new world
Prematurely I will sink in
I hope that the sound that keeps me
The sound that is sending me to this new place will withstand it
Let me breath for the last time.
