My entire world has come crashing down,
I'm alone in the flood but I just can't drown.
My choice is to be just as I am,
With the water coming up, I don't give a damn.
I can't feel the deluge seeping my lungs,
I can't see the end so close to my tongue.
I can't hear the beat of my heart or the drum,
I can't taste failure of the life I've succumb.
The water it rises steady and sure,
It's crystal clear, the only thing left pure.
No one comes to save me from the end,
Alone in the flood with nothing to defend.
At one point I had aspired, to be all I could be,
But now I sit alone and let the flood waters,
Wash over me.

-Sarah Christine
