I want to go where there is water —
walk into the brightest blue ocean…
walk in until my head is completely submerged
walk in until I sink to the bottom.
I wonder what I will see beneath the blue —
will the water be darker?
will I be swallowed up?
will I be torn apart?
will I die before I hit the ocean floor?
or will a force push me back to the top.
Because maybe it’s not time for me to be at the bottom.
