Life... is not all bad, but it is not all good, it is not all ugly, but it is not all beautiful... It is savage, cruel, kind, noble, passionate, selfish, generous, stupid, ugly, beautiful, painful, joyous --  it is all these, and more...

-Thomas Wolfe

Floating

Floating

Floating is the best thing.

Best.

Thing.

Being weightless in a body so emotionally

And physically burdened by this world

Is my greatest relief.

Water.

A sacred resource

Holding me up in a time when 

I should be holding it in higher esteem.

It doesn't seem fair

To be so comfortably surrounded by an element

That causes wars, floods, and famines.

Yet, it is my greatest relief.

It is the 

Best

Thing.

Floating with your eyes toward the sky,

And your ears hearing only the waves under water,

And your hands feeling the rhythm of every ripple.

It is the

Best 

Thing.

It is my greatest relief.
