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

.

Glimmering

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

Everyday

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
