Drowning (2021)

Drowning in the ocean
No life raft to be found
Lungs burning from the salt

No need to flail arms
Accepting this planned fate
It was the ending prescribed

No more tears
Or hiding the truth from others
Freedom you always wanted finally achieved

The body floats to the bottom
No air left in the lungs
No light left in the fight

The dark abyss with arms wide open
Enveloping the body with warmth
Pain now a thing of the past
