A Struggle Lost






The rain comes pouring down
And it never seems to stop
I swim to try to get out of it
But can’t seem to make it to the top
I fight against the hands
Which are pushing me back down
I struggle as I lose my breath
I cannot hear a sound
The effort that I have left in me
Is getting less and less
I’m going to give in to it
As I just need to rest
My fists unclench, the struggle now gone
The color fades from my face
My soul no longer with my body
It’s now gone without a trace
