In water not so deep.

The surface is right there,

but I just can’t reach.

Legs too exhausted,

They can’t hold my weight.


The water is not even deep.

I’ve stood for too long.

Stayed strong too long.

Been silenced too long.

Mentally damaged, too long.

Endurance, every drop is gone.

My head could reach above water,

I just can’t remember,

How to stand, how to stay strong.

No one can save me,

I’m far too weak.

So I’m drowning,

in water not so deep.

I absolutely love this poem: The way you formatted it, and repeated "too long", and the metaphor itself are amazing. I'd definitely like to read more. :)

The four lines repeating "too long" is brilliant. Really added a lot of power to your piece. Keep writing, I'd like to see more.
