Waters encompassed me;
the deep whirled around me to the soul
Darkness upon the surface of the deep, the Divine Presence
hovers upon the surface of the waters.
by Malika Zarra
I fight, scream, swirl around
I whirl around inebriated by the unfathomable depth
of the ocean
I fight and scream in the midst of darkness
I fight, scream, cry for help
I keep whirling and spinning around
Until I realize-
Alone-I must stand and reveal my true inner strength
Out of breath-I run!
