Poem: Destined to Drown

Floating through this life
broken
Like a lifeless body
drifting through a
vast ocean

Unable to find
a way out
a shore, or
a lighthouse

Beneath the surface
in these waters of murk
I know are monsters
I know they lurk

But as I
go to scream
my lungs are filled
and I cannot breathe

Sometimes I ache
to let myself sink
hit rock bottom
as my limbs grow weak

Without a raft
I’ll certainly go down
I kick and I swim
But as it would appear
I think that I
am destined to drown


Thanks for reading 🙂 Hope you liked it!

Edit: I just hit 400 followers and I want to thank every. single. one. of. you! 😀
