Just Keep Swimming

The darkness is taking over my thoughts,
I try to escape, but I can't.
I'm drowning in a pool of my own madness.
I can't seem to keep my head above water.
No matter how hard I swim,
The more I struggle the faster I sink.
I'm swimming towards the light.
Something's got me,
Pulling me down.
Pulling me deeper and deeper into the water,
It's my demons,
They know how to swim.
I'm trying to escape.
The harder I fight,
The harder I struggle to put my head above water,
The further they drag me down.
They won't take me down with them again.
I kick harder,
I yell louder,
The grip around my ankles loosens,
And I break free.
