Freedive Ascent – A Poem

scuba diving freediving

I ascend from the ocean floor,

Through shafts of wondrous sunlight.

My mind dabbles in a state of pleasure,

And in marvelous rebellion.

Defying mind, breath and pressure,

I’m enveloped,

In a liquid element,

Travelling to the edge of myself,

To a place of well being.

To feel, to know, to be alive,

For once, I’m certain,

I’m where I should be.

The ocean beckons, and taunts

Dares me, to stay a little longer

I’m a visitor,

Stuck in suspension

Between this world and mine.

I go on through,

And finally surface,

The world seems brand new,

As I cling onto

Flimsy shreds of normalcy
