Sometimes I feel as though I'm drowning.
That I'm stuck looking up from the water,
on my last breaths.
Other times, I feel as though my life is falling apart.
The city that I have built in my mind,
is crumbling, building by building.
Yet, when things get tough,
I learn to fight the pain.
I remember that I can swim.
That I will learn to breathe again.
And that even when a building falls,
I can rebuild.
