Birth Of A Fish by Vlue Birth Of A Fish by Vlue
DSC_20000 >DSC_0535 copy.JPG

He lives in a four by two glass box, it reminds me of my head.
I wish my floor would have rocks, but it's covered with puddles instead.
If I could be him, life would be great.
I could erase this permanent frown.
I wouldn't even be held down by my own weight.
I woke up, walked to the tank to hear his thoughts on yesterday.
"How was it?" I asked.
And after a tap on the glass, he looked my way, then gave me this depressed expression.
Impressed, it's best just to say "Besides the tides and the grey skies, it was okay!"
And I said "Hey mister fish, you get all that you wish.
You got nothing to complain about while hanging out in this bitch!"
Well, he replied "Well existence is bliss, there's so much that you miss.
Besides, get off the trip, happiness is just a myth!"
I said "Living in water is extremely more peaceful than
life finding minds, blinded by evil, and forced to see through
these two peep wholes."
It seems a redeemed freedom, not being limited by walls.
But that only means to qualify ground for the sky when it falls....
But mister fish just laughed as I went on, and on, and on....
So, I interrupted his chuckle, putting up a middle finger.
And he boldly told me "It's too bad I'm such a thinker."
So Arrogantly I asked "How could someone think too much?"
He added that "Insanity lingers and thoughts brought me to the brink of such."
He said "You live inside a head that reminds me of my glass box,
And everyone's the same; all brains are contained by your reality frame,
And chained, to with the rain, its trained hard not to change,
And once you see what I've explained you hit the jackpot."
And at that very moment it was like my eyes really opened,
The air that previously surrounded me was now an ocean.
Still totally invisible accept for minor pieces of debris.
Then mister fish pushed up to the glass and he looked just like me!
My whole world spun around, I didn't understand.
But I realized I was no longer a man.
So, I thought about what he said.
And asked him what was going on.
And he said, "You didn't know it, but you where the fish all along!"
He said, "Congratulations, you did it, you broke free.
You're just a fish, like the rest of humanity."
Now, it took me a long time to get adjusted to this tank.
But now I know what I am, and so to that man I give thanks.
I've always lived inside this glass box that reminds him of his head.
It just goes to show you that your mind is your own monster.
Reality is what you make it, and if you take it away, your just a fish, like me, swimming in the powdered water.

make sure to get the album "first born" by Eyedea and Abilities if you like the prose. Eyedea raps about philosophical concepts in that whole album

i always imagined this song to be about a more subtle fish like a gold fish, haha.
but the picture and lyrics are beautiful nonetheless.
nicely done.
