Keep Swimming

Keep swimming

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well! I’m sharing a poem with you today, I hope you enjoy it.

Keep Swimming

When the world becomes too much to bear
And the sky is falling down
When the river of life swallows you whole
And you slowly start to drown

Let go of the things that weight you
Relax and close your eyes
Release the past – look forward
And you’ll quickly begin to rise

Accept that life has ebbs and flows
Understand that that’s okay
Sometimes you’ll feel depressed and tired
But there will be better days

Keep swimming through the tougher times
And you’ll make it to the good
Keep hope alive within your heart
And keep fire in your blood

As always, thank you for reading my words – I very much appreciate it.

Until next time,
