Waves crash over me in every direction
So much so that it’s hard to pay attention

Is it possible to drown but still be alive?
If Heaven was a river, I would dive

Because I know that means eternal peace
And I know it means I’ll be in one piece

I try to speak but the water chokes me
I need to cry but the current coats me

I can see the shore but it grows smaller
All my fears are growing taller

My fist is briefly seen as I try to fight
The strong current blinding my sight

God are you there?

He got me out before – He will do it again.

He is my Lifeguard.

    Amazing poetry! Reminds me of that scripture in Isaiah – “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; (43:2-3)… got me through a lot of tough times!
