The Phoenix

Lost in this great ocean of time and space
I wonder ,should I swim or even dare to think...
I struggle to move , I wriggle
not able to take even a deep breath...
for the breath is showing a mocking grin?
Not to withdraw... I try to gasp!
To let the last bit of air, that can touch my soul.
To resurrect...To bring back the vitalsĀ 
Those were long lost!
