A Hidden Gem

Poetry

Don’t do that.
Don’t tell me I’m not
Trying. I swam
Through 12 oceans
And drowned in every
Single one of them,
But each time the water
Seeped into my lungs
And the fish started
Swimming in my blood-
Stream, I spat it all up
And continued swimming.
I am not a life raft,
I will not pop in the
Middle of the ocean.
I am a fucking ship
And I promise you I will
Make it to shore
Alive.
