We often find ourselves alone,
Drowning in the infinities of our sorrow,
Letting the sea engulf us whole,
Failing to grasp for air,
Failing to writhe from the waves,
Just wanting to float above the chaotic sea.
We expect someone to swim out in the depths for us.
We expect someone to dive below us,
Save us from drowning.
We want someone to be our lifesaver,
But our expectations go unfulfilled.
Reality’s waves-like the seas- crash into us,
Taking us away from the shore,
Swallow us as deep into the sea as possible.
The only one that can save you is yourself.
