Favorite Quote:
"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear."
-Mark Twain

One little step
Possibly a push
And then your gone
Deep down
To the depths of the beyond
White noise then
Your in your own world
A world of endless thought
Bubbles float up
Little trains of air
Traveling to the surface
They move before your eyes
To quickly touch
But hurry, it's time to leave
You're running out of air
Back to the top
To start all over again

The author's comments:
I came up with this poem in my mind while I was swimming. I'm a competitive swimmer and one day I was just messing around and jumped into the pool and sat on the bottom of the pool. After I came up for air it hit me how beautiful and magical what I had just seen was. So I got out of the pool and jumped in again and again until the simple words to describe my almost otherworldly experience came to me.
