I hold my breath and close my eyes
As the water around me begins to rise
I brace for impact, a blow which never comes
Only the cold water to which I succumb
Washed away by a current from my promised land
I see all around me, opened hands
I claw and scratch
Tear and wound
But my fingers just happen slip right through
I sink deeper and deeper into a world a-new
And the gentle whispers which slowly consume
I don't want to open my eyes
No no no
My heart and mind tell me so
The sharks circle my feet with rusted teeth
I must escape so I ****** and heave
I reach the surface, and bob up and down
My oh my, I almost drowned
Constructive critism is welcomed
