They said, “all it takes it a leap”, so I jumped in.
We both knew I couldn’t swim, but You were going to teach me.
I knew I was supposed to heed Your instructions after the dive, but that water was distractingly cold, and my feet couldn’t touch the bottom.
I fought, and fought, and kicked and kicked.
Doing my best to keep my head above the biting water.
I got upset then grew tired, I became upset again before giving up.
As I knew I would,
As was the reason for my fighting, and kicking,
I began to sink, or was I?
I wasn’t sure, and part of me didn’t care.
I kept sinking.
I closed my eyes in an attempt to silence my mind.
Preparing to die.
And then I noticed a change in direction.
Am I rising?
Glorious Day! I AM RISING!
Look at this!
This is MARVELOUS!
