Life's Jacket

In life you can wear a life jacket For this no one has to see It's not entirely for said waves But internally to you and me It's when you become immersed In depths that you'd never known Thrown against the waves of life When faltering to never have grown Imagine wearing that life jacket Looking out to translucent see How black it so quickly becomes We're no longer in the trees Our eyes are closed to the cold Incoherent we have now become When we were here we existed We've now become sunk as none .

Huge One, we do wear our own life's jacket once in awhile, the reasons that is accordingly to what we are experiencing or the situation we are in but I do hope the life jacket we are using carries major role that is to save us.... tight hugs!smiles~Olive Eloisa =`)

A deep write sad James. I admit I wear a protective poetry 'jacket' that has protected me from the sadness of the last two years without it I think i would have sunk without a trace:-( Hugs jan xx 7.
