The Journey

Even when you feel like you are drowning

You will eventually swim to the top

It may take longer than you hope

And you may get swept out farther into the sea

Before you drift in a little closer

But you will always find your way to the shore

You will always make it back home

And knowing this

Makes the journey just a little bit easier

You will make it

It will be okay

The day will come when you will smile easily

Laugh from your gut

And relax into life

For now

Strap on your goggles

Take a deep breath

And paddle yourself in

If you need a break, float

It is okay to do that

I will see you when you get home
