Holding Back

Don’t post that.

Take that down.

What will they think?

What will they say?

Because of that, they might take your daughter away.

What words are left to say when your last breath has been choked away?

Drowning in frustration.

Drowning.

I’m drowning and no one can even see.

No one can hear me.

I’m suffocating on my own surroundings and everyone just keeps passing by.

And then somehow I manage to pull myself up.

My eye catches a glimmer of the sunlight as I look up and I hope.

I hope.

It’s all I have and somehow it has saved me from drowning.
