A 100 word contest entry
"The Deep" by Mark Valentine



The ocean beckoned. I answered.

Cold waves startled as I took my first steps toward the deep. I pressed on.

End the pain.

The water was waist high now.

You will be unmissed.

Strong waves pummeled my chest. Walking became hard. Angry tears streamed down my cheeks.

Keep going!
 

There is a thin line between suicide and redemption, drowning and baptism. I can’t say whence the wave that drove me back to the shore. I only know, as I lay there looking up, I saw a glimmer of sun break through the clouds, and I breathed in the graced air.
