Out of the abyss
Buried emotions surface
Like a submarine.

Submerged so long
Almost forgotten until
You hear that one song.

It feels current
Flowing along the surface
Try to submerge it.

It happened so long
Ago. Practice self forgiveness
Again, one more time.

Let the intensity
Fade. Let it submerge deeply.
“Prepare to dive!”

Becomes prepare to live.
Many times keep on forgiving
Yourself and others.
