When life takes you by rude surprise

Despite all safety checks

Shocked and numbed

Paranoid with fear

When you can’t understand what’s going on

When you’ve been pushed and pulled from all sides

When all your plans come to a screeching stop

When every door to escape is locked

None seem to open

When the water’s gone way above your head

That sinking feeling

When you’re drowning in the deep

And all out of breath

When all your strength’s long spent

When you’ve given every ounce of fight

And you still find yourself stuck

In a serious jam

Holding on for dear life

No one can hear your screams

The end seems near


I will not go quietly into the night

I will find a way out

I will keep pulling at the chains to set myself free

Even amid crashing worlds

Running out of time

I will die trying!

If need be!

If need be…





“…Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

-Dylan Thomas
