I will swim

if I seem too adrift
in this ever-changing sea
and all that I have found
are only weights upon my shoulders
pulling me
knees through feet
anchors descending

and my arms fall beside me
with no strength for resolve
no breath left to exhale
and my gaze is reflective
glass on water
hope on trial

your hand reaching
from distant shores
shimmering
craving
guiding
I will swim
I will swim
