Little Girl in a Lake

I saw her drowning

She was so small and so scared

We could all see her from above in the murky lake frantically flailing about.

She didn’t know how to swim

Her face grew grim with fear and panic

But she didn’t close her eyes, she didn’t look away, she didn’t give-up

We finally pulled her out of the water; her heart beating louder than that of a caged bird.
