Just Keep Swimming - Poem by Joline Gordon

It is an ocean
And it is mine
Somewhere in its depth lies my beginning
A love that has no end
For this I must swim

Through the darkness of the waters
A light shines through
The beginning of something beautiful
But then it disappears
I feel alone and lost
But I keep swimming

It's been a lifetime of comes and goes
It slowly fades or vanishes suddenly
Or it was never really there at all
I could drown in the hurt
But I keep swimming

It is always different yet the same
Always beautiful
Same falling, same love, same end
Always an end
But with an end will come a beginning
One day I'll find my beginning with no end
So I just keep swimming

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Although this poem poured out of me from a deep sadness within, I am grateful for the motivation to write it and for Dory from Finding Nemo who reminded me to just keep swimming, just keep swimming. :)
