One in a Million

The tip-tap of walking feet,
Voices of customers about,
The scent of salt-filled air,
Quickly filled the room.

All equaling to one answer,

As I pranced about,
Searching for the perfect pet,
One tank caught my eye.
Everything surrounding me,
I was trapped,
I had to get out,
That was my only light,
I closed in,
Fascination overwhelmed me.

My face pressed on the glass,
Moistened with salt,
Yet i didn't care,
Before me was a beauty,
A one in a million sight,
In all it's glory.

It was before me,
A breath away,
A Baby Cat Shark Egg.

My Breath stopped,
It moved,
Somehow telling me something,
It knew my presence,
Joy overwhelmed me.

I was the shark,
It was me!

The author's comments:
I just would like to thank you for reading my poem. I wrote this poem while i was at the pet store looking for my science project. This goes to show you, that poetry can be anything. It can be your emotions, or something as little as going to teh pet store. Only you can decide what your poetry is about.
