The Feat

Orbiting above
I see an entire existence below.
So unknown
I am speechless
Enamored

So, I allow myself to catapult off the diving board
And I fall
Further down I go, until,
I hit the water.

Under the surface I gasp for air
And allow it to fill my lungs.
It is then I realize, I am not human
As this is the only place it seems I can breathe.

The rip tide
Is dragging me further under
There is no fear.
This is peace.

The rest of the universe is muffled
And I can finally hear my own breath.
What a feat,
To be able to breathe under water.
