Poem - To Swim

“To Swim” is poem about exploring life beyond the realms of the known safe borders. To do so is probably unwise, but the lure of the action disregards the unwise outcome.


To Swim

I want to swim
far from the shore
there to live
not to expire

one way journey
into the void
in deep depths
where I may lie

temptation’s guile
led me here
a foreign place
not my home

I’ll not regret
perhaps I will
just a little
before I swim

to find my way
I know not where
when I arrive
I’ll be there

leave the land
to not return
to find myself
lost in your arms.
