Drowning In The Sea Of Life

We are all in the same boat
Just trying to stay afloat
Not drowning under the waves
That ripple and grow more each day
Life jackets can help us bounce
But something comes along to pounce
Dragging us down to the bottom
There's only so much we can fathom
Until we can't catch our breath
From the murky water depths
Of life that happens every day
From an anchor we just sway
Hoping to survive this fate
Of a weight that's much too great
Everyone is suffocating
We could use some incubating
So we can breath once again
Letting all this drowning end

    wow, another good one here, Robin!!! This was third best on your list. I have decided to see that list when I have no new ones of yours to comment to. I think it will be easier for me to keep track of where I am with your work. BTW, I see Archaic poet left a note here in 2013. Where the heck IS that guy?
