Why do I find,
That when I gasp for a breath
Some force pushes me down
Doesn’t let me breathe in

I struggle
I fight
I want to get to the top
But I cant
Something keeps forcing me down

For some reason
I can’t decipher what it is,
I don’t know, what is pushing me

Desperate, I look back
Who can save me?
I need help

It is only then that I realize,
That I am pushing myself down
And only I
Can help myself.
