Y/ Flying Fish


A flying fish was flying,
Flying too high, flying too far
Ending up on the beach
Gasping for water

Torrential rains kept it alive
But how it longed that someone 'd
Pick it up and throw it back
In the ocean of our Creator

A flying soul
Was flying too high
Was flying too far
Away from the ocean of God

The ego had brought it
To throwing stones at a helpless woman
He was praised to heaven
And the soul lay gasping

The ego had brought it
To throwing bombs on 4 year old kids
He was called a hero
And the soul lay gasping

The ego had brought it
To a hell of manipulations and lies
He thought he was really rich
And the soul lay gasping

The ego had brought it
To the rape of children
He thought he had had fun
And the soul lay gasping

The ego had brought it
To preach hatred
He thought he was popular
And the soul lay gasping

A flying fish had
Decided to fly
To fly away from the ocean
The ocean of Love

    You have given a universal message through the symbol of a fish out of water, waters of love and divinity. when we fly out of this ocean our souls lie gasping on the rock of ego, it's inspiring piece of writing. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
