I wonder

Water encases me
Presses against me
As if to test
To find some weakness
Where it can flow in
I’ve learnt
To keep moving
Not to let the pressure
Get too great
Just smile and move on
The water chills my skin
I wonder
If by some flaw
I’m cold at heart
A gifted
Frozen grin
People talk long
And hard of love
But few will risk
To swim
The sea of love
And I wonder
As I turn another lap
And glimpse the rising moon
If I’ve done the best
With what I had
It’s easier
To shed tears
In water
So I’ll swim another lap
And I wonder
Perhaps life
Is learning to swim
Through our tears
To glimpse

A rising moon
