I Swam Through the Land

I Swam Through the Land
by Alex Lewis

I swam through the land,
But realized it wasn't grand.
After swimming through the soil,
I realized I was being disloyal
To the water I used to walk upon.
I had got up and I had gone.

I walked on the water the following day.
I waved to the clam, alone on the bay.
It wasn't all that great,
not too far from my hate.
After swimming through the ground,
I knew walking on water was not profound.

The Boeing New Year's Day Swimmers

'Tis something that one should not do in a whim
To participate in the Boeing New Year's Day swim
In dark icy waters swollen by rain and sleet
In the river Blackwater near the Town of Millstreet.

In the depths of Winter in zero degrees
With frost on the ground in the cold gusty breeze
Just thinking about it does make me feel cold
But then again time has left me feeling old.

There must be great inner warmth in the Duhallow grog
For the Blackwater in Winter would freeze a hairy dog
Those who took part in the swim medals for bravery are due
To their Glacial Gods they would have to be true.

It was for a good cause that much I do know
But in weather that's even too cold for to snow
Without a single leaf on any deciduous tree
To swim in the Blackwater seems beyond brave to me.

Of the coldness of the Blackwater in Winter I do have an idea
And after such a swim one would need something stronger than tea
'Tis not for the faint-hearted is all I can say
And for the Boeing New Year's Day swimmers lets hear the hooray.

Swim 2

Searching for better views
I've never been this much reduced
And every road I've crossed
Has brought me back to where i was
And all I've loathed I'd trust
To drag forward towards you, love

And there isn't much to say
That i haven't already said
Now all the pressure in my veins
Is merely bursting out of my head

But your touch, it heals
Pain is no longer what i feel
Within the depths, you are true
And there my soul trembles for you

Wondering, just wondering
Maybe you're the line that separates our worlds
Maybe you're the light that guides us forward
Or maybe you're just another bump in the road
That never ends with rewards....

Maybe you are, maybe you are not
And to me maybe was never enough

And you say: ''Swim and keep swimming''
But now i feel like breathing for nothing
And you say: ''Sing and keep singing''
But the words keep on shoving me down
And there seems to be no easy way out

Im breathing now
Im breathing out

Doesn't it ever bother you to not know
What lies before uncertainty you follow
Doesn't it ever bother you to just go
And face the inevitability of your hollows

No, you just keep swimming
And the world's just spinning
Because they kept swimming on

And the world was just spinning along
Doing nothing, nothing, nothing wrong
Because we were all singing this song
The one that says we are finally home
Lubna Hazeem

Far Away

One day I’ll swim far away
Beneath the sea
Beneath the surface
Where it’s safe

One day I’ll swim
In the depths so deep
That I see my soul
And hear it scream

I’ll see the fish
And the coral there
And all the shipwrecks
And human bones too

The water won’t sting my eyes
My skin won’t itch
It would be as the air
On the ground
Where it’s dry

I won’t hold my breath
I’ll let water fill my lungs
I’ll let my body sink
And wait to die

One day I’ll swim far away
To the darkness below
And let my soul go
To the safety of its Master

One day I’ll swim
Far beneath the depths
Where no scientist has seen
No human has imagined

I’ll stare in wonder
At the beauty of the deep
And watch my soul reunite
With its rightful Owner

Written on Friday,26 February 2010 when I let it get really bad.
