Casting Beyond Your Comfort Zone

swim little fishy
swim with all your might
just keep trying
even though its not worth a fight

sorry little fishy, but you're already trapped
mounted in the bowl on top of a dresser
is now where you belong
mounted in this bowl is where you're expected to find life long pleasure

I hope you're happy inside your new home, little fishy
I mean, who couldn't be happy stuck inside a bowl?
it has anything your little fishy heart could desire
how couldn't you succeed in this bowl, little fishy?

sure, outside the bowl holds a whole new world of opportunities
and sure, outside the bowl allows you to be free
might as well give up now little fishy
seems like you'll be stuck in the bowl for the rest of your days
don't you worry, little fishy
I'm also a little fish wanting to be released into big blue sea

It could use a little work, but over all it was really good!
