Drowned

by Sanjida Shaheed

I was standing
On the beach
For too long.
The sea ahead mesmerized me.
Yet my feet
Wouldn’t move
For fear of drowning.

Now I am ready.
I’ll get on a paper boat
And sail!
Away!
Away!!
Away!!!

The sea of
Knowledge is
Deep!
Deep!!
Deep!!!

I will take a plunge
And search for pearls.

I have left my fears
At the beach,
I have chosen hope
And hope has chosen me.
And if I get tired,
Breathless
Exasperated,
I know You will
Carry me to the shore.

The ocean cannot drown me.
I have already drowned
In Your Love.
