Life’s an ocean

of voices;

to where you’ll swim

is up to you.

 

But—

“I don’t know

how to swim,”

she said.

 

Then—

“Build a boat, a bridge,

or ride a submarine,”

he said.

 

Her eyes cast down;

he saw her frown

disheartened

and confused.

 

“Well, you don’t have

to do all those

if you can’t

at this time.

 

Some voices are

loud enough

to drown

the others down.

 

Most voices are

whisperings

that share

a common ground.

 

Yet deep within,

One’s greater still

that calls you

to prepare.

 

You just

might drown

if you

swim now.

 

So,

come.

I’ll teach you

how.”
