My Own Aquarium

 


My Own Aquarium by CheerfulChuck, 2010


 


If my fish could talk


What would they say


They are the ones that see me


In my unguarded and natural way


They seem to recognize me


Especially at feeding time


But what do they really think


If they only could tell me what is on their mind


 


If my fish look at me


What do they see


Can they tell that I am lonely


Can they see that I'm not what I should be


Or are they just watching and waiting


To see when they will get to feed


But what do they really see


Can they see that someone to love is what I really need


 


If my fish were not confined to a tank


Would they be happy to be free


Or would they miss my ever presents


And think about all the fun there used to be


Back when they were safe and well fed


Behind the glass of their 45 gallon kingdom


Ahhh, to dream of what a can fish see and do


When all I really need to do is break out of my own aquarium

Floydess, Having a fish tank is cool! You just have to change the filters every 2 weeks or so. And change about 1/3 of the water every week or so. Oh yeah, you have to trim back the plants once and a while. That's all you got to do... except FEED them everyday and if they are like my fish watch them watch you!
