On a day when insecurity rose,
hooked and reeled to the surface by a simple question—
preventative measures failed
and I was tossed into the box,
gasping for assurance,
caught by my lack of confidence.
All day I flopped there—
feeling strength one minute,
uncertainty the next, until
someone touched me, lifted me up, seeing
what was pure,
setting me free to swim in waters of love.
