Drowning, drowning, drowning…
Please, someone save me…
But his voice is lost
In the suffocating dark recesses
I have no one.
Solitude envelopes him
In her arms,
Crying for him,
And the boy finds himself
Sinking deeper into the depths
One last time,
A faint, flickering fire deep within his heart
Drives the boy to open his eyes,
Hoping for a miracle to present itself
In front of him.
He finds himself surrounded by light
Where before there seemed to be eternal night.
Searching for the source
He slowly tilts his head back to look up
And squints his eyes.
A hand is extended towards him.
Not daring to blink for fear of its disappearance,
He hesitantly reaches out to touch it…
And he grabs it.
Strong and steady.
Who is this?
The hand pulls him up,
And after being momentarily blinded
The boy looks up to see…
