Murky waters

Deep down in the murky waters

I hold my breath,

Looking to untangle myself from the mess,

That holds me deep down in these murky waters,

I struggle with the things that hold me down

Just like I know I ought to

In these murky waters

And as I struggle and get myself free,

I find a desperate need to breathe,

In these murky waters

And feel my lungs about to burst

As I try to rise up, the pressure hurts,

In these murky waters

And I feel my self succumbing,

To the bliss of suffocation

And as I try to swim on up

I feel like giving up on this,

In these murky waters

But I strike out one last time,

As fear and survival fill my mind,

In these murky waters

And as I break the surface

And as the light showers down on me,

As I break out of these murky waters,

I gasp and breathe in air

I breathe in life,

That these murky waters tried to deny

My body and my soul of,

It thought it was in control of me

But these murky waters

Could not keep me down,

In these murky waters

I refuse to drown.
