PROMPT: March Grab Bag

6
Rowing down my river of broken dreams and hopes
A small girl once drowned in these waters
Made by my own expectations 
S
tandards that I knew I'd never reach
Each wish pointless, should've learned to swim
Should've kept my tears in my eyes
In my own sorrow, I drowned
Victory is a word I shall never know
