I Find Myself

I find myself

lost in the ocean

but not the one that you think of when

you think


the liquid is my own thoughts

drowning my talents

discouraging my mind

the water ever-deepening

from all the tears I cry

I don't know if I will make it

but then a friend comes

a pocket of air

reminding me to breath

helping me float to the surface again
