Everything you do in life is insignificant, but its important you do it anyway ~Ghandi

I run and dive into the watery wasteland
I swim and swim till I am in the middle
My arms freeze and my legs stop kicking
I float for a second then I go down
I sink lower and lower
My mind say to move but my body does not obey
The last of my air trickles out
I smile as the black takes me
With a surge of light I am gone
Off into sweet bliss

"... How dreary to be somebody-- How public like a frog;
To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"
-Emily Dickinson

I think this is great, but it's also a bit dark. If you need to talk about anything, I'm here :) Great poem, keep writing

I think you're cool and all, but are you a masochist? Just wondering. Hope not. Don't die! Lol
