Neck Deep

Go with the flow
It will take you somewhere
I promise,
To calm
Or to storm
That I can’t predict.
It’s better than being stagnant.
It’s better than being a rock
That water can erode
With its zealous flow.
Where shall you stand
When the waves land
Splashing on you?
Taking you in
Swallowing
The best of you
The better of you
Or the little that you have left.
Even the scraps you got
Are right now your best.
Just don’t let 
The water get
Neck deep.
Just breathe.
You’ll survive this.
