Far Away - Poem by Michelle Freeman

One day I’ll swim far away
Beneath the sea
Beneath the surface
Where it’s safe

One day I’ll swim
In the depths so deep
That I see my soul
And hear it scream

I’ll see the fish
And the coral there
And all the shipwrecks
And human bones too

The water won’t sting my eyes
My skin won’t itch
It would be as the air
On the ground
Where it’s dry

I won’t hold my breath
I’ll let water fill my lungs
I’ll let my body sink
And wait to die

One day I’ll swim far away
To the darkness below
And let my soul go
To the safety of its Master

One day I’ll swim
Far beneath the depths
Where no scientist has seen
No human has imagined

I’ll stare in wonder
At the beauty of the deep
And watch my soul reunite
With its rightful Owner

Written on Friday,26 February 2010 when I let it get really bad.
