ReassuranceNever fear, young one, you are safe.
The water will not take you
The fire will not take you
The monsters will not take you
They would never dare.
The water knows that you're mine
The fire knows that you're mine
The monsters know that you're mine
Forever, young one.
The water knows that if you go, I go.
So does the fire and the monsters.
And who in the universe would want to take me?
Fish: a story in haikusThe water is clear
The fish swim around slowly
Look closely, you'll see
They're staring at you
You must pay them attention
They're dancing for you
The splashing begins
You still leave them unnoticed?
Why would you do that?
You can't see the fish
So anxious to impress you
That's terribly sad
They've lost their brilliant joy
They feel neglected
I hear them crying
If only you could see them
They're sorry for you
Off they swim, wishing
Wishing you luck in your life
Hoping you'll find sight
Their scales, shimmering
They soon dissolve completely
Searching for your eyes
PressurePressure either breaks you or builds you
Digs you up or plants a seed.
Pressure either haunts you or fills you
With everything you need.
We all feel it
We all know it's there
But some of us worry about it
Others just don't care.
I pretend to be the other person.
I try and act like I'm so strong.
But inside, every little thing crushes me
People realize that I don't belong.
I'm stressed and I can't breathe
I really want to leave.
