Forever Risen

I’m afraid I’ll sink,

So I always dread swimming,

But I yearn to feel the waves brushing against my face,

The feeling of ecstasy as the tides carry me along,

I know I’ll gasp for breath at a point,

My arms will get tired of stroking the water,

I’ll be cut by obstacles unknown in the sea,

But this yearning

grows on regardless,
Maybe I’m not meant to swim,

Maybe I’m not meant to endure these pains,

Maybe I’m not meant to get tired whiles struggling,

Maybe I’m meant to walk proudly on the sea,

To triumph once and for all,

And not after several desperate tries,

Maybe I’m meant to be the phoenix that never dies,

The one that lives in the perpetual glory of immortality,

The phoenix that was always risen.
