What it means to drown

you try to hold your head up high

when their unsmiling faces that kill budding flames

pull you down and force you to drown.

you cannot explain the sudden loneliness

which covers you like a blanket and sucks all the

air inside you till you begin to seek for air from other sources.

there is no greater love than the one you colour your heart with

when courage fails you and you begin to see defeat

galloping towards you.

stand and make your heart your armor

when they come to tear your soul out from your body.

be a star that’ll shine through the long night.
fire burns but it burns even more

when you are told to drown instead of live.

and so you drown and then they

measure the number of times a stone will bounce

when it lands on the waters you fell into.

no coffin, no grave.
