WEDNESDAY: Building Strength

Treading water,
without a care in the world.
Sun warming my face,
waves lapping at my shoulders
creating rhythm through my body.
Arms and legs
building strength;
moving in simultaneous determination.
Looking straight ahead
knowing full well there will not be a lifeboat
to find me;
treading water
in perfect rhythm
with no intention
of stopping.
