I Drowned Again Last Night

I drowned again last night

as I am wont to do.

I fight the blackest ocean

flogging insistent seas.

Against my deepest Self I flail

treasure so far below.

When at last, my crown submerged,

I take first liquid breath

and feel its soft sweetness

flow inside my chest.

How many times must I surrender

before it’s clear to me

that I am pure Sawol

always meant to Be?
