#NaPoWriMo Day 22

Sink completely.
Stop struggling.
Feel what it means to truly sink to the bottom.
Deeper than your worst imagination can conceive.

Once there,
Allow your body to stop.
Start stopping till you're still.

With only your eyes and nose above the surface,
Be as aware as you possibly can.
Now that you are no longer restless,
Call for help.
Ask nicely.
You will receive it.

It may be a known face,
Or a complete stranger.
Accept their help.
Be rescued.

Having returned to life
Approximately as you knew it,
No longer in the clutches of death,
Breathe easy.

You now know what it means to be alive.
Embrace it.
