Current

I feel short of breath and depleted

I have been fighting against an ocean current 

That at any moment will pull me beneath

Rather than resist anymore

I wonder what it would be like to succumb to the pull

To let the water wrap me in a supportive embrace

And fill my ears, drowning out the noise from the surface above

To be restored by the light that dances on the water’s surface 

And plays on the sand below me

Weightless and soft I relax

I surrender

I am at peace
