A Guest Post From Edie: A Poem Titled "Swimming in the Lake"

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a post from Edie, at Minty Perfections. Edie sent a poem to me, that is very beautiful. So anyway, let's read her post!

Swimming in a lake

The water,
deep and warm
makes me shiver with happiness.
I feel feeble like a mouse cornered by a cat with a rumbling stomach
Yet as bold as that cat, satisfied with his catch 
I take a plunge

I feel that satisfaction is finally in my grasp
That life is finally in my grasp
For it is, indeed, precious.

As the water covers me up I feel I could not hurt a souI 
I question how someone could possibly hurt anyone
We should value life
Nobody does
Not you, not me
We wish we would die
We want the ground to swallow us up
We wish others would die
We shout and scream

I swim a few metres
I can't get enough 
of this happiness

I know
of course
when I get out life will be the same
I will start wishing I am dead
I will want the ground to swallow me up
I will
I guarantee

Because I'm part of the vicious, bloodthirsty, hurtful race that is
