Underwater with no air to breathe 

The optimistic sun shines through to me 

But I look away 

Lost in the fray 

In a never-ending depth waiting 

To be swept away 


The sun still shines 

Its rays reaching out to me 


I will take this opportunity

I look down to the deep blue sea


With so much curiosity 


Then I came up for air 

And took a long stare 

At the peach sunrise

Smiling over the edge of the skyline

And wondered what the future held

What opportunities waited

For me just past the sea
