Sink or Swim?

Sink,
Down into the depth of oblivion,
Descend into a basin of tepid dreams,
Float into the stream, cooled by the air,
Languid;
Inside waters of the deep,
A shape of cured decree,
Aspire to be,

To sink or swim?

To kick your feet –
And paddle upstream,
To fight the battle of torrential urge,
Wet and wallow, a turbulent affair,
Thrashing against the pull of the tide,
The grip; slipping away,
Breathe,
Suck in the air of life – inhale,
Drawn in, the space within the light,
Hold and fight.
