Keep On Kicking

Thoughts are all around me

I am swimming in the middle

Trying not to go under

Some are obstacles

That I must swim around

Others push me like the tides

And I fight to swim through

But ahead in the distance

I see what looks like shore

There is a welcoming warm light

There are so many thoughts

Can I ever get past them

Or through them to the other side

I turn around and look

At the distance I have traveled

It gives me hope

That maybe I can tread water

And not get lost in the chaos
