The Mud

I am slowly being suffocated by the mud. The more I struggle the deeper I sink, no matter the strength I use. 

Now I am calm, tranquil, serene. Finally I can see the way to break this crushing pit.

I must allow myself to sink to it’s depths, once I’m there it’s hold will diminish and I can break free.

My only hope is I can hold my breath long enough to escape this pit.
