The waves come crashing down

making it harder to stay afloat.

Just trying to tread water becomes

a tiring task while awaiting a boat.

The ocean swallows you whole

and you hold your breath

while you await your rescue.

Then the light in the distance

pulls you from your imminent death

until you realize it’s not for you.
