I’ve swam- against

Harsh currents of doubt, all my life

Some brought on by rain, mine

Others from loud reining voices

While I paddled in dark shadows

Waves broken- in total silence

Cold and alone I once was  

I no longer need- to swim

I’ve found my reflection, vividly

Standing on a wave- from within

And it reached down to save me

Pulling me out of that unceasing sea

Of caustic bitterness and lies- not mine

And now I can breathe, droplet free

Holding hands with a smiling me

In warm amber lights soothing

Doubt free as I walk on… bitter waters
