Survival adrift...

Pushed out to sea tragically
At the mercy of the weather
High waves crashing over
Swamped by the waters
Winds howling all around
No land in sight
Set adrift for eternity
Water, water everywhere
But very low supplies
Is that land I see
Or my imagination?
Praying for salvation
Need to stand on dry land!
So throwing caution to the wind
Frantically paddling
Want an end to all this
Abandoning the boat
Wading for the shore
Crashing to the ground
Feeling total relief
Now the next survival begins...

Life can feel like being abandoned at sea with nothing and trying to find land again
Paddling like mad, scared, heart pumping until an island is found to rest on, then the next
stage of survival starts.....
