How long would it take

For an anchor to sink?

How long would it take

If I was the anchor?


What if the waves

crashing above

Were the daily struggles 

I was meant to face


What if the sea creatures

swimming around me

Were the family and friends

Who keep me steady


Surely the elements

would have no effect

Surely my problems

wouldn't, also


My own weight 

is enough to bring me down

My own courage

is enough to hold me there


Through homelessness

through college

through leukemia

it is enough


Through it all

I am still anchored
