As a small fish in uncharted waters she struggled,

Not knowing that the very struggle will harden her troubles and mold her.

‘Small fish’,they said…and nabbed her of all the trust and faith

That she once had on her fellow fishes-how foolish of me,she thought.

Wanting to change her for better companions…the wild possibilities outgrew her,

Finally producing what she really wasn’t…a pleaser and a loser !

Once known for skills and no-objection,always an easy prey for big fishes to pry on.

And so the word spread and the small fish regretted its transformation…

The firstly abandoning fishes were the ones she thought will stay by her side during difficulties !

Time answered all confusions of the small fish with instances from near future,

That her purpose among her present group was fulfilled and no longer required

Leaving the small fish all alone once again !!

“Is this life ?”,shouted the frustrated fish towards the boundless ocean,

“This is just the mirage of what life will be !”,boomed back ocean with lively lessons.

  1. Hi dailylife. I thought you did a great job with this piece. It’s very unique and I liked the way you used a fish struggling, and learning as a metaphor. It was very well developed, and concluded nicely.
    I don’t know if you want to participate, but I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. You can choose to accept it or not. It is on my page at, http://www.combingthecatacombs.wordpress.com Thanks, and I enjoy your blog. I haven’t had a lot of time to keep up with everyone’s pages, but I plan to try and catch up.

      1. Thanks dailylife. I will be looking forward to reading it. They can be time consuming especially if you are working on something and post daily. I had a couple who turned it down, but that’s okay. It would have been easier for me if I had known what I was doing. Somehow the post appears different once I hit publish. On the work page, it was nice and neat.

      2. That is so true…some of our own writing and words seem vague and very different once they are published.I’m so sorry that people turned down your nomination.Stay positive…I’ll try making the post about myself interesting !

      3. I agree with you about reading our own writing, sometimes I question it and what I meant in the first place. What I was trying to say. I do like some vagueness though, in some pieces it works very well.

      4. I actually try to avoid doing that, but sometimes I do because I have the tendency to want to change things with them. I agree about the vagueness. I have written a few that I don’t even really understand completely.
