One Fish Two Fish Me Fish You Fish - Poem by Jonah Radovsky

I am like the ocean deep and mysterious

I am the stranger that makes you kind of curios

Sometimes I am calm sometimes I am furious

Sometimes everything inside me drives me delirious

At the top I have thoughts swimming through my head

Some of them alive some of them dead

Sometimes I'm like an eel spontaneous and shocking

Or a guppy in a tank small alone locked in

And if you your curiosity eventually implores you to explore

You might a discovery that no one has before

Some parts of my mind are too dark to restore

I don’t know myself but I want to know more

You might see an ugly fish that could scare even myself

You might find an old abandoned ship filled with riches and wealth

That hit an iceberg at a time when there was nobody who could help

A piece of myself long lost and buried

How can something so familiar be so damn scary

Terrifying sights and hidden delights

Hidden in the dark and locked away until the end of the night

When I am older I think I'll explore the deep

I look it in the eye because I refuse to accept defeat

I will keep swimming down I will not be beat

You'd have to kill me if you don’t want me get on my feet

As the mystery unfolds I will discover who put me in this muzzle

One day I'll figure who's to blame for this puzzle

Parents enemy's or friends maybe combination of the three

For all a know it could have been me

Could I be the one responsible for my own misery

I could have locked it all up some point in history

I think I found the key but something is still eating me

I thought I had the answer but it was not locked inside of me

The answer was right in front of me

Whale I was in too much pain to see what was breaking me

I think I need another fish to swim with me

As I explore what lies in deep within the open sea.
