Poem: I Swim

I face the swim
Bare flesh exposed
I jump
And fall
Bubbles boil around me
My worries fall away
I swim
I swim
I swim
I swim until my muscles burn
I swim until my skin grows soft
I swim until
The water and I are one
I am filled with serenity
I feel a joy akin to ecstasy
I am in complete harmony
Reluctantly I break the union
Regrettably I return to Earth
Until I swim again

In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV and movies, going on long walks, swimming, and practicing Chen style Tai Chi. I love to write poetry and blog regularly about topics such as mental health, sci-fi/fantasy series, faith, sexuality, and politics.
