Gasping

I’ve been drowning

For so long

That

I’ve forgotten

If

I ever knew

How to swim

To begin with.

I’ve flailed

Against

The waves

For so long,

Sputtering

Mouthfuls of water,

Gasping

Between the crashes

Of forces

Greater than

Myself,

Searching

For the bottom

To place a foot

To steady myself,

Unable

To see

The shore,

But somehow

I have not

Yet

Drowned-

Either

By the will

Of God,

Or the cruel hand

Of Fate,

I am

Still

Here.
