"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you"
-Dr. Seuss

You were born on the misty breeze
A child of the Underseas
You see yourself shining bright
A star beginning to glow with light
Your blood runs blue like the river
A feeling of warmth makes you shiver
Whether a breath of fear
Or an icy tear
A little bit more than you know.
You know this feeling,
A feel of delight
A feeling that makes you grow with might
And as you go
And brave the storm
She sits home
Safe and warm
But while the wind blows
She always knows
You're a child of the water

The author's comments:
One of my personal favorite pieces of poetry I've written, has been published once in my school literary magazine. Inspired by my belief as a child that I was meant to be a mermaid. Written in circa 2008?
