delicately dipping the toes in, just wet enough
splashing around the warm puddle
while wading in the kiddie pool
this is comfort

tripped and fell in the deep end
dive deep little swimmer
submerge and swallow the waves 
and let them wash you clean

your arms are stronger now
so the break doesn't seem as rough
this is the beginning
