Don't be sad because sad backwards is das and das not good.

Underneath the surface of the water

I look up and I see the sun shimmering through

It glimmers in the water like the world's most precious gem 

I float

Weightless within myself 

But the seas’ embrace holds me down

I reach for air but can’t touch 

The light teases me with its glinting dance

Tiptoeing across the water 

My hair floats behind me 

I see strands flow into my view and glide away again

Unfazed by the hold of the oceans’ grasp

I can move quite freely

But can never reach the top

It evades me, never to be caught.

I write my work typically in a japanese style, switching from a visual of nature to something that I tie in/relate to it. I'm a highschool student and I'm starting to share my work because I have a goal to publish some. Thanks for reading.
