Before You Drown

Before You Drown

A Poem by Krista Gallant

I kept reaching for clouds

So many times before

But I seem to always trip

And fall to the bottom floor

 

As I lay, I say get up  

Recognize and start to think

Don’t gulp, take modest mouthfuls

You must be taught before you drink

 

So if by chance or circumstance

Life appears to get you down

Take a moment, ask for help

And you’ll swim to the top not drown
