A Goldfish In A Tiny Bowl

A goldfish

Swimming around in a bowl

A tiny bowl

A place where life has been decided

He will live out his life in the bowl

Spending everyday

As he did the last



In another tank

A dying goldfish

Who knew

She was dying

In a life she knew she had never wanted

Where she never achieved her goldfish goals


Through the glass of the bowl

The goldfish sees

The dying fish


It reflects on life

Inside the tank

Where everyday

Is like the last


Is spent in a life

That this fish

Thinks is not worth living


Looking up

The goldfish sees

An opportunity

To start anew


At this stage of life

The fish

Jumps out of his bowl

Into the ocean of the new world

Abandoning all in the old bowl

Without a care in the world
