Learning to Breathe

I am no hero
I am just trying to breathe
underwater
in the deep end
of fear
and the unknown.

Is it really what we don’t know
that scares us?
Or the pain we know we have to
endure?

Sometimes it takes more courage,
to break through the water
and take that gasp
of air,
than to let the waves
pull us down.

I am no hero
I am just learning to breathe.
