One Hundred and Thirty Seven: Feeling like drowning (reblog)

I saw this post and I loved it. Written about a fish.

Feeling cramped and frightened, I twist and turn, trying to rise to the surface and take a gulp of air. It is difficult to see through the haze that surrounds me. My vision falters and fades. My anxiety rises and it is harder to focus. I feel like I am in a fishbowl with not enough space to swim. I close my eyes and imagine I am swimming in the open ocean, riding the waves and feeling the pull of the current underneath me. I am free and strong. I take deep breaths and move myself swiftly across the surface of the sea. Turning onto my back to rest, I float on the gentle waves, held by vastness of the oceans energy. I feel the warmth of the sun on my face as I gaze at the clouds in the blue sky above me. I am no longer afraid. In this moment  all is well again.
