I open my eyes wide,
And find myself at the very bottom of a deep dark sea.
I feel nothing, see nothing.
My only thoughts are that I must rise to the surface,
Rise to the light of the world above.
But I am chained to the rock bottom,
And I cannot free myself alone.
I will not drown unless I will it.
I can stay here for a few seconds,
Or even many decades.
I am waiting here alone.
Will you come and allow me to float to the light?
