The Parrot



I would often tiptoe my way through sand,

watching as the waves clash

everyone in the water with no fear,

could be sharks,

could be crabs,

yet they swim while i’m nowhere near.


I would want to live,

live without fright

What was that like?

to be able to run out of the sand

and be able to float 


as days go by

and I proceeded closer to the tide,

I found that feeling

that fright

disappear into the light


Atlas, a new fear appeared

leaving my friends behind,

they were still in the sand 

only toes deep

looking towards me

their eyes pleading

“wait please”


But I had to bid adieu

for I have a path to follow

with or without you

I pray that I catch you in the waters in good health,

swimming around with your dreams,

happy with yourself


I’m ready for this new journey out the sand

into the water i go

no sharks

no crabs

just the next steps to the new chapter

to live life in bliss

and becoming a big fish
