Dark water rushes,
fight for the surface.
Slammed to the ground,
the waves drag me out.

Lost at sea,
Give up,

Captivated by the light
as it breaks trough the waves,
this time I’ll fight.
I’ll make it through the haze
hope doesn’t drown.

The author's comments:
Just keep going no matter how far under you feel.
