Paddleboat

And I'll sink so low, you won't see me.

“Every day is so wonderful, and suddenly, it’s hard to breathe,

Now and then I get insecure from all the pain, feel so ashamed.”

-Christina Aguilera, Beautiful.

Imagine if you will,

A paddleboat,

In a vast, deep blue ocean.

You can’t see land on either side,

It seems as if you fell off the edge

of the Earth.

Right now,

I’m on that paddleboat.

Some days, I stay on it,

Some days, I float in the ocean,

And some…

Some I will sink.

I will sink

And sink

And sink,

And I’ll sink so low,

You won’t see me,

And you won’t know how to help me.

But that’s okay,

Because after awhile,

I’ll start floating back up again,

Maybe half dead, but I’ll float again,

And eventually you’ll reel me in,

And eventually I’m back up on that

Paddleboat.
