So Far Under

Poetry By: Coralie

Most days I'm tempted to dive down to the bottom of a lake or pool and stay there forever....

I ILay me down

Under the water

Never again to see

Above the surface,

For I will surely drown.

So far under

With no air to breathe,

give my apologies

To everyone;

My sisters, my friends,

My father and my mother.

Here in the deep

Where all is serene

The water around me,

surrounds me,

As I slowly fall asleep.

No longer can I live

On the land above.

I've been broken by

All the hatred and deceit,

and by the false promises of love.

Instead I retreat

To the place I have always felt safe,

So to my haven,

My life I shall give.
