Lifeboat

Sometimes you need to relax to allow for survival

LIFEBOAT

Why is it..

that when you try the hardest...

Fighting the current...

Struggling to keep your head above the foam

and the waves

and the debris,

You always end up with that bitter

acrid

polluted seawater in your mouth

Running through your teeth..

Down your throat 

Choking you

Until...

You slowly give up....leave it to Fate

And

...Fate carries you on, until,

Your last breath.

When

Shore is finally in sight

Strive!
