Fish


I'm a fish beneath the sea
Swimming in these troubled waters
And I just can't seem to breathe
Swimming fast as I can go
But it feels I'm getting nowhere
I can't reach the top for air

I keep drowning
Don't know where I'm going
I can't reach the top for air

Where is up and where is down
It's getting harder just to swim straight
And I still can't seem to breathe
Some fish around me swim
Acting like they want to eat me
Why can't they just leave me be

I'm a small fish
Not a big fish
I need wings to fly away

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
