Sharks in the Deep End

When I was younger
I feared sharks
in the deep end of the pool.

I sat on top of
the washing machine
to see dad
when Harry fought Voldemort.
inside Hogwarts school. 

I left a can of Pepsi

when a wasp climbed in 
and always avoided 
them swarming around
an open top bin. 

Scaring me isn't too hard
I can easily 
be caught off guard 
but maybe
if I have friend, 
I can take the plunge
in to the deep end. 

PS - Note of interest. The swimming pool in the picture was the one I went to when I was little  :')
