Calm and quite under the sea
where it’s so dark and cold around me
I hold my breath and look to the surface
there is a soft light shining down with purpose.
The storm has receded and it’s time to regroup
all ready to deal with what I must recoup
swimming up it seems so far away
my arms feel like they are papier-mâché.
It must be close because the water is warm
the surface is sparkling like a perfect art form
the light, it draws me up and it feels so right
not like the depths below that are as cold as night.
I wave goodbye to the silence of the sea
because under the water is no place for me
my heart wants to cry and dance and sing
it wants to be a part of everything.
