Because there is worse a curse than drowning

because i know there is worse
a curse than losing to water
and that is to lose ourselves
in the pool of others

That hit hard. Too many lose themselves to the world and end up forgetting who they are. When you lose water you die physically, when you lose to others you die continually, both mentally and physically.
