No Second Chances

Updated on December 28, 2009

Who Am I ?

I see your world clearly now with my eyes that never shut

I feel the vibration of your thunder over my head

You are solely responsible for millions dead

Your wisdom is shallow and your actions are unexcusable

You hunt all species until we vanish

With your technology unsurpased and truely remarkable

Many of your people have drown because lack of repect and fear

The temptation is to much and you will be back again

This time you may return and never leave

Only to join your friends in their rocky grave

I travel as long as the sky that I see

I may never fly free

My playground has been around since the beggining of time

In the past you have left havoc to my lovely santuary of peace

You are constantly lost in your world as well as mine

I do not follow your customs or traditions that drive you insane

I folllow the laws of nature

I do not share in the way of killling by torture

I still believe the world is flat but you know better

You make me sick with your attrocities

and plain disreguard for all life

Racism is your enemy

You make rules you do not follow

Your unlike us who only the strongest survive

Some of your peoples remains have been left behind

my transparent look is some what primative

Compared to your complex nature

Your foods are abundant unlike ours which are scarce and hard to find

Your thirst for creating battles for control and conquer is never quenched

We are truely exquisite in color

You have sealed our fate in glass tombs

We still welcome you freely as you pollute our water and deplete our resources

You make endless games out of our misery and torture

You excel in your desire of trickory until you get what you want

You would be out of place if it wasn't for your cold heart

We have been hunted thru the ages

Fighting for our lives against all concievable odds

Entangled in your indistructable web

Speech is not important to me

It sounds like a lot of useless chatter

You never seem to understand

I watch as people laugh and point and some how disappear

At times I feel so vunerable

But I am left unharmed

You are sometimes surprised but never disappointed

when you are carefully watching me

My life is short and by the time it takes you to read this

I may have been eaten by you

I am a fish

      GmaGoldie I got the idea looking at a huge fish tank in work when we were slow.Other coworkers were board to tears and wanted just to go home.I wanted to stay and write and write until my fingers would fall off.It can be applied to our lives in many ways.But I was just a fish that day.Thank you so much for letting me swim your way.

      Wow! You had me to the very end - a fish! We all feel vunerable - amazing how we end up unharmed.

      Wonderful piece but the fish ending - hmmmmm.....

      Thanks for the invite, for some reason did get your message till now. If you trade the coffee for a cup of hot chocolate, I'd be glad to stay for awhile:) Cute!

      Heart4word I confuse myself sometimes.I get thoughts in my head and I just let them fly.I try to make sense of it all later.I guess I have a gift and I haven't mastered how to use it yet.If you have any suggestions on how to make it better please let me know?I am always trying to teach myself what others already know.Thank you for reading and hanging in there till the end.I can explain any line that confuses you if your interested?I would love to hear what lines you liked the best?Some people just love to believe what ever they want that is fine with me too.I just love to see my words on paper unfold like a daily paper delivered to you at 6 A.M. to your doorstep.Please come and chat and stay awhile the coffee is brewing.

      I did love your perspective on this, I thought it was very creative:) At first it threw me for a loop, didn't know who was talking to whom! Great Job:)

      The truth is I was busy at work.I work where I can look and see a fish tank.I was wondering what it would be like to be anywhere but here.So I wondered what the fish would say in the fish tank if they could talk.One thing led to another. Then I expanded my thoughts to the fish out in the ocean and the way we live our lives somewhat carelessly.Ofcourse I cook fish all night.So I guess I was feeling guilty of killing so many.I never thought that thought before.So thats my fish story sorry there wasn't more to it.

      fish that is the plural for fish also, not correcting you, but it is,

      Now i am thinking maybe you were having a bad day when you wrote this missing a friend, who knows. Do you feel differently today, we don't hurt people on purpose, do we? fish smell too

      poetlorraine maybe fishes are smarter than we think.They have their own world inside our world.I thought it was a unique point of view and can see how we live and sowly hurt each other for no apparent reason.
