Poetry by Farah Lawal Harris

Life Swimmer


i am floating…
swimming
back and forth
between
emotions,
sometimes drowning
but ultimately
staying
afloat.

  2. I think it’s a combination of a lot of things, but transition definitely attributes to these emotions.

    Transition, you’re right. That is the perfect descriptive word.
