"They do not seem to me to be such; but if I am the Devil's chid, I will live then from the Devil." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

When in doubt,

swim it out.

Life may be a struggle

at times, but-

just keep moving,

and everything will be okay.


you’ll dink your

head against the glass.


you’ll feel the

need to jump out.

But just keep breathing;

just keep swimming.

Time will pass-

food will be replenished,

water will be cleaned-

it will work itself out.

When your time is finished,

and you’ve started to raise to the

surface of the bowl-

just keep calm,

it’ll be okay.
