a Poem By Raquel Swann

Have you ever felt as if 

You’ve smashed into an iceberg 

And the compartments of your life

Flood over one by one?

The experience is so surreal 

Until you step into a puddle

Realizing you will sink 

It’s inevitable. 

Hurredily, you scan for ladders.

Stairs or elevators 

As the water levels rise 

Below your very feet

Crowds of others push past

Worried about their own lives 

You’re in survival mode 

But you feel like you forgot 

Something or someone. 

When you reach out your hand 

Who will grab it in such terrible times? 

And lead you ashore.
