Poem Commentary

Something to think about. Children and parents should love this.

Fish in a bowl

I am your fish in a bowl far from sea
Remember me feed me
Give me some attention
My bowl is much smaller then it used to be

Now in my bowl two eyes watch me
I think about how it used to be
Wondering where my home could be

Clean water food lots of friends
See me through the day
I am your fish in the bowl

My friends had beautiful colors
With angel wings others have big eyes

How big you look to me
Please don't tap on my bowl
It hurts me so

I am a friendly fish
That lives in your bowl
Please take care of me

I may never go back out to sea
Be my friend I'll be yours
We will get along together
If you take care of me
I'm your fish in the bowl

I see you are seeking for something to write. Look within. My oldest filled my fish tank with a box of crumbled crackers. The couldn't move.'-)

Oh no I had one of my sons hit the tank with a spoon. Fish and water everywhere! It was a mess. I played catch the fish, bucket the water. His little eyes looked at me as if to say what did I do??
