Swimming in the dark


I’m still swimming in the dark.
I anxiously anticipate from which side the ray of light will finally show up.
All I’ve known to do, I’ve done with my skills. However the dark still has all the space right now.
Am I still far away from the horizon of hope?
My stamina is slowly wearing out…even though I keep telling myself “swim on till the light”.
Everything a pro-swimmer can do to stay afloat, I have done.
It’s now just a matter of will I make it out of here?
Am I swimming in the right direction?
Do I give up now?
Will light ever come through?
I really don’t know exactly.
However, I will keep this brave heart to stay swimming…if ever I drown, let it be that I stayed fighting.
