Dreaded Battle

HastyWords and I wrote a poem together. Check out her blog!

“Dreaded Battle”

With aching fingers I searched

And scavenged the area around me

For the water beneath the sand

As the soft soil plunged me in deeper

Thirsting for my survival instinct

I tried not to let the wind knock me down

I buried my palms deep into the land

And stood looking over my shoulder

I watched the ocean dance the tango

That was when I knew I had won

Today would not be the day I drown
