the minutiae of our lives doesn't matter when you're drowning.

you give up
but then you get angry
at another injustice
another outrage
and all of a sudden
you care again.
it's easy.
you escape in art & music
nurture your soul
do your best
but always
the drowning happens.

you captain the boat
you see the lighthouse
you know the sacred
you are strong.

the wake of the past
dissipates to calm again
when you learn the lesson.
the lighthouse looms
as it should,
it is important
a totem for the future
a beacon
for when the drowning happens
to remember
you captain the boat.
