swimming upstream

that's how i feel
that's how i've felt
for the past year...
like i am swimming upstream
against the current
fighting the wind
every now and then
gasping for air
gasping for breath
looking for a reprieve.

the good thing is
the swim is getting easier,
the breaths last longer
and give me strength...
and i am reassured in knowing
that, at least,
we are moving forward...
slowly but surely,
inches at a time
but i know it is only going to get easier,
we just have to bear down hard for this final piece

and then
we can relax....
