Hold your breath,

For as long as you possibly can,

Because it may be your last,

And the last time you'll ever swim.

Falling into the ice-cold water,

Limbs freezing to stiff sticks,

Mind and eyes falling into the black,

Heart beat and pulse slowing to a halt.

See hands reach for you,

Only missing you be the hair,

As you slowly sink to the bottom,

God have mercy on your soul...
