I’m just trying to stay afloat.

I’m trying not to rock this boat.

But this boat is already tossing.

The waves are already pushing it ashore

And I feel as though I’m losing grip of the oar.

How do you stay dry when your boat is taking on water?

How do you stay on course

When your too busy hiding from bad weather?

How can I stay afloat

When I’m trying not to fall off this boat?
