Safety Measure

There was a time
I only dipped my toes
in shallow waters
to stop myself
going too deep into
despair

Thank God
there were plenty of
such safe places
if only
my will to live
remained on the
surface

  1. I liked this! Because it is so literally true for how I used to feel at the beach, and whenever I’d (rarely) come across a scenario like in the picture, I’d absolutely love it! Feeling of safety whilst also swimming in the sea :).

  2. And me….I went straight to the deep end. You’d think after so many years of nearly drowning I’d be a toe-dipper. But I’m getting better at just feeling out the waters now. I enjoy your writing.
