[insert everything StarKidPotter did]

The rushing water pulls me down,

Air bubbles escape me without sound.

No matter how I kick and writhe and struggle,

My fingertips turn blue, as do my knuckles.

And as I begin to drown,

Air bubbles escape me, without sound.

The author's comments:
I went white water rafting one summer. The guides talked about all the things you needed to do not to fall into the water, and what you should do if it happened. It just got me to thinking what it would be like if I did fall off, and couldn't swim to safety.
