I saw that he was drowning, so I waved back.
Try swimming, my friend, I said.
It's no use flailing your arms about.
I'm now on solid ground and know the ocean is just an illusion.
So it would be silly for me to jump back in.
I know you can swim. I've seen you swim before.
I know it seems a long way but that's all an illusion.
You could be here in a flash if you set your mind to it.
Drowning is a choice. Despair is an attitude. Depression is a lifestyle.
You can go that way if you want...but I bet you are curious to know what life is like on the shore.
Let that curiosity drive you and don't get too distracted by sea-creatures.
I know they're pretty and interesting but you'll just tire yourself out.
Go on, I dare you. Make the journey. Start now.
