The moment you read the words, like a wave reaching the shore,
You’re pulled into deep understanding of everything
The moments the drawers can’t open filled with files
Unsure what to do next would work best
Yesterday’s thoughts running behind you
Deep within the water that you can’t speak or think
Then you return to the surface, and fog wraps around
You can’t see what’s head, only three feet away
Was there something beside you unseen?
Where are you going now? No one knows.
The water is you slowing down, and you’re bright awake
Why is everything taking so long? You never know.
Where’s the motivation to move forward?
You’re stuck in one place with no where to go
You feel like a Zombie frozen in pain
While you wait for the fog to clear
You learn the strokes in the water to move
Ahead is the process that can and will be seen
