Swim 2 - Poem by Lubna Hazeem

Searching for better views
I've never been this much reduced
And every road I've crossed
Has brought me back to where i was
And all I've loathed I'd trust
To drag forward towards you, love

And there isn't much to say
That i haven't already said
Now all the pressure in my veins
Is merely bursting out of my head

But your touch, it heals
Pain is no longer what i feel
Within the depths, you are true
And there my soul trembles for you

Wondering, just wondering
Maybe you're the line that separates our worlds
Maybe you're the light that guides us forward
Or maybe you're just another bump in the road
That never ends with rewards....

Maybe you are, maybe you are not
And to me maybe was never enough

And you say: ''Swim and keep swimming''
But now i feel like breathing for nothing
And you say: ''Sing and keep singing''
But the words keep on shoving me down
And there seems to be no easy way out

Im breathing now
Im breathing out

Doesn't it ever bother you to not know
What lies before uncertainty you follow
Doesn't it ever bother you to just go
And face the inevitability of your hollows

No, you just keep swimming
And the world's just spinning
Because they kept swimming on

And the world was just spinning along
Doing nothing, nothing, nothing wrong
Because we were all singing this song
The one that says we are finally home
