Drowning…

I'm afraid of drowning
I'm afraid to get too deep
So I wade in the water
Where the ground is still beneath my feet
I'm afraid of being swept away
I'm afraid of flailing arms
I'm afraid of lungs engulfed by water
When my voice has no sound
I'm afraid of being helpless
Sometimes, I wish I could swim
Because maybe, just maybe
I'd be able to escape the sand
