Natural Buoyancy (Written June 2)

Natural Buoyancy


Beneath the waters, since I was a boy,

I have felt the tug of gravity pulling

Me down. This all-too-heavy body


Has wanted to sink and lacks

That natural buoyancy that others

Possess. To stay alive has been


A constant struggle. Keep your head

Above water, has been my motto,

And so I have not been the most


Honest of companions, or the most

Faithful of friends. I did what I had

To do to survive, and the proof


That I was right is that I’m here, I’m

Alive. And now, whatever the world

Wants from me, I’m ready to give.
