Afloat

I know what it's like when the water keeps rising, while the plans that you made all seem to be revising... Choose not to drown... When there's no solid ground that your toes can grasp onto, change is burning your ship fire smouldering around you... Choose not to drown... Start swimming, start floating, do whatever you must, to keep your head above water, to try not to combust, and Choose not to drown... It may still feel like drowning, like you'll never get ahead, but when the flames are growing and the ship is sinking look around you instead... Choose not to drown... There's always salvation just waiting in the wings be it home, or a little magic, or something you've never seen... You choose not to drown... Sometimes it's someone you never saw coming, to pull you from the waters right at your summing... Because you chose not to drown... So find your deliverance and then build a new boat, for the hardships make a hardy sailor and adventure awaits for those who float but refuse to drown...
