Shallow Water

SPACE | A simple poem on the need for space, and the fear of getting too close.

The shallow water scares me
I stand on the rock and fear to jump in
Unsure of the depth
Although I know
The tide is low but I’ve done it before
I know it is safe

I finally dare, and I’m fine
But the shallow water still scares me
I swim out to the depths
There I am safe
Nothing can touch me, I have my own space
I am free

In the depths there is nothing to limit me
