I remember when I was younger,
I asked my parents for a dog,
But they immediately refused and handed me a fish catalogue.
I don’t exactly remember the first fish I had,
Though I wanted more of its comrades.
I still remember the day my first fish died,
I wonder how its family felt to not have her anymore by their side.
I hope she’s happy in her afterlife,
Only then I understood the reality that we face on the walk of life.
I wrote this poem thinking about my life back in elementary school! My sister and I always wanted a dog but we never got one because my mum refused no matter what we said. So to make us happy, my parents got us fish. I didn’t mind them but I felt bad that I couldn’t interact with them at all! Haha, just a small poem to come back to writing more frequently.
I apologise for being away, I was just feeling very demotivated and couldn’t think about anything that I wanted to write. However, I am back now and I am gonna post more frequently. Feel free to tell me what kind of content you want here! (^_^)
