I told myself it was okay to sink.
Okay to sink in the water at the bottom of the well
That I falling into
Even though I would probably drown.
It went on and on, giving me time to think about
Giving me time
To accept the outcome.
That my anticipation was guaranteed,
There was dirty water beneath me.
When I finally hit the bottom,
It was as dry as the Saharan skies
My surprise came as I realized that I had survived
Though, it hurt like hell.
I guess my life lesson is that I can anticipate the worse outcome,
But the reality can be much harder,
And I will still live.
