Eternal Drowning - Poem by Allan Farran

Suddenly feeling the ice cold water
engulf you being.
Like dropping through the bleakness,
of an endless decline;
with a feeling of blinding.
While watching a slide show of your past,
that is now in ascendance.
Your panics and fears are simply asking,
for just one more chance.

You are sinking deeper and deeper,
Into a world that is unknown.
Seeing a flashback through.history,
of all wars and eternal strife;
surrendering all hope of a brighter dawn.
Multiples of many colours and sound,
circling all around
Dropping further and further into the unknown,
Drifting far away from the filtering sound.

Flickering embers of a funeral pyre,
That is now becoming
Ending the pain and disappointment in life
that is no longer hurting.
With darkness now beginning to lift,
clearing my sight that was once blind.
Out of the cesspool of heartache and misery
I have climbed.
With all miseries renounced to feelings of peace
With endless amounts of tranquillity,
In a new world of love and affection that is plenty.

Like the phoenix from the flames,
you have been reborn,
Where a heavenly and trouble free world
Is greeting you at every dawn.
Once there was mist that darkened your day,
Now there's a sunrise to lights up your life;
That was once grey.
So where is this place?
With fields so vast and smells so arousing.
That was gifted through the misfortune of drowning
Or maybe the fortune of drowning.
