Sometimes you start to sink, and begin to retreat within

but before you drown in sorrow, look up and try to swim.

Chase the bubbles to the surface, pump your legs and push the water

under and below, and if it grabs you push back harder.

You didn't dive on in just to have a bad time,

so make your way atop the waves and remember, you'll be fine.
