Drowning Foolish Pride

Image result for picture of tired lonely swimmer

Being pretty and traveling fast behind a speed boat,
this brunette decided to go with one ski and asked if I could
retrieve her other one with one wave of her arm.
Not realizing the ski was beyond my swimming
capabilities, I dove in for it anyway as it skirted by.
As I began to swim hurriedly, I realized that I may not be

 I became so tired and doubted my faith, while
breathing became tiresome and my limbs felt like barbells.
Stopping to peek and still too far away for my pride,
I turned around and prayed.
