One toe at a time

i dip my toes in the water
and remember the last time this happened
last time, i didn't dip my toes in first-
i dived right in
big mistake, i know
the current swept me away
until i was under
and sinking fast
i was pulled down
down
down
down until my senses were frozen,
down until i was immobile, with no strength left
yet at that moment,
my toes skimmed the bottom
of the seemingly bottomless pool
and with invisible strength,
i pushed off
the tide had weakened, thinking i was done
well i wasn't
and now i'm here again
here to show that i can do it right-
one toe at a time
