Tuesday writing response at GoDogGO Cafe

In response to the prompt “Beneath the waters” at GodogGo Cafe

You hold me down
and choke the last sliver of breath
out of me

helpless and out of breath
limbs frayed
and life losing its grasp
I’m fighting for life
with all my might

the fighter in me
never gives up
Hope is another day for me

I have the unabashed truth written
all over my skin
wrinkled and soaked
swelling up like a raisin

I found home finally beneath the water
I live and rise like a mermaid
that’s how life teaches me.

–Megha Sood
