.
Not Drowning This Time
  .
Fingers hold my ankles fast
Ripply faces looking down
Just beneath the water line--
Not drowning this time.

Hands aloft claw the sky
Gurgling screams silent bound
Water starts rushing in--
Not drowning this time.

Shadows push back the light
Only one thought remaining
Water wants the last breath--
Not drowning this time.

Limp legs stand no more
Sinking down once again
Water's not my friend--
Not drowning this time.

I know because, like with Peter
Stretching out His hand
The Living Water will catch me--
Not drowning this time.

Amen.
 

Matthew 14:22-33
John 7:37-38
