307. Fish in a Pond

I looked through a photo I took over the weekend and penned for the very first time this poem.

They say I move and look beautiful
They give me a place and become very faithful
They say to all I bring smile and luck
They sometimes wish that me they could pluck

I feel cold, trapped and lonely
I swim, I stand & I fall very gently
I remember a little but I remain in illusion
If I could choose I wish to be you, a human

Eating, sleeping, mating and defending I have done
As one of you, I will do them all in plenty and ton
A day arrives when you feed me God’s mercy
In association, I learn on life and beyond very firmly

From a fish to a human to a devotee I become
I swim in thoughts, walk in the sun and hatred I overcome
Longing to reach all living beings on Earth
I touch them all in their death and birth

They say I move and look beautiful
They give me a place and become faithful
They say to all I bring smile and luck
They sometimes wish that me they could pluck.
