They say
Only the fittest survive, sardonically.
The whole enchilada’s pressing on my throbbing
Head. Like a drained sponge, dehydrated
I can only hear jeers, see mocks, talk
Nothing with my quivering lips, to the
World that says I am drowning to doom in the
Tough Ocean of the world. But they know not
That I can swim.

This is really great and awe-inspiring. Sometimes I feel this way but I fear that I can't swim, but this reminds me of that little fishy that says "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!"  Don't stop writing please xD
