Keep Away

wrapped in the summer sun

floating on the waterline

allowing the world around to flow through

it’s not coming

it’s not gaining on you

you own the space inside

behind you is only yesterday

no change of plans

breathe deep as your hand drags the water

don’t fade inside

unfold your fist

as your mind gets tight

slowly tapping your center

don’t fall to your knees

stand tall in the mirror

recognize it’s only you

the battle seems daunting

you are not alone

not that far from home
