Sink or Swim

We have many techniques

To battle the bleak

But sometimes we choose

to submerge


There are days when the world

Upon us is hurled

And were pushed to a

Dangerous verge


So we let ourselves sink

To lament and to think

Until sleep is averted

by tears


And we start a collection

Of our shameful subjections

And open the floodgates

To fear


Sometimes we must toil

To keep things at a boil

Instead of it gushing

Upon us


But then back we must go

To the treacherous flow

And to seek what is better

to calm us
