The body shivered, not because of cold and the fear inflated.
My body cringed and the breathlessness escalated.
As I went in deeper, my body went numb.
The intensity of the deep forced me to succumb.
That one breath made me see things that weren’t seen.
I looked around and realised that I was a startled being.
The warmth composed me and the water put me at ease.
As I spent some time in, I learnt that there is so much more to seize.
All I did was listen to my own heartbeat.
For not even once, I felt defeat.
My heart was heavy when I left that place.
For me, it is the genesis of a new life phase.
