Another perspective

Here it is: another chance
to get caught up in ugliness;
to feel myself
slowly waterlogged
with feelings of unworthiness;
to feel trapped, tied  down
and full of grit and grime.
Breathe, I say -- step back
and try to look at it this way:
appreciate that you are still afloat,
the stillness of the water,
the safety of the ties,
the tangled charm
of questions and emotions.
