Deep and down he dove-

time became an unknown

The swell rose and slashed-

his body managed the clash


He considered turning back-

none could survive this attack

But life doesn’t work in reverse-

he continued as conditions grew worse


A manner of monsters grew near-

they looked at this poor creature with a sneer

The man never looked around-

he’d experienced life’s ups and its downs

Deep and down he dove-

Unto a place, no one else has known
