I take a deep breath
and I dive in
I can't see
the waters are muddy

I swim, I push my arms
I fight against the water
trying to hard to get there
I will make it to the other side

I come up for air
and dive back in
I can't stop now
treading water in not an option

I am so tired
but I go further
I can see the horizon
I have to make it

My new journey begins
if I can make it through this
I reach out, I touch land
I can breathe again
