I am drowning in a sea of despair,
Crying for help but no ones there!
As darkness washes over me,
It swallows me up like a tsunami.
I desperately scramble for the shore,
Trying just to breathe once more.
As I go under I splash around
Then slowly sink without a sound.
As the lights I see begin to dim,
I kick my legs and try to swim.
But I am weak the current strong,
I have struggled for far to long.
As another wave comes crashing down,
I except my fate and I do drown.
