I can vividly remember,
When I was almost swallowed by the sea,
But now that I can swim again,
The monsters cannot get to me.
I can breathe again.
In through the nose, out with the wind.
It seems I’ve been forgiven,
Despite all the times I have sinned.
My veins are vessels for sunlight,
My palms baskets for stars,
I cannot always win my battles,
But I always heal my scars.
I praise the earth and give glory to the sky
Thankful for being revived,
Until I remember it was me all along-
The reason I have survived.
