Swimming with Sharks 6/15/19
Summer brings warmer waters.
Summer welcomes beautiful oceans,
and breathless seas.
Sandy white beaches, scattered sea shells and
thrilling deep diving.
Summer brings tranquility, solace and happiness.
Be wary of that deep dive and all those thrills however…
Summer’s warm waters also brings
sharks closer to the shores.
Before you know it if your not careful
you’ll be swimming with sharks
turning the beauty of the ocean
into a scarlet tide
not only dark red deep
what once was so beautiful
can turn on you
you’ll be lucky if you make it out alive.
you’ll be lucky if you survive.
and that’s how I feel
as I struggle with my manic-depression.
It contains all the beauty of the entire ocean
but the sharks swim there too.
