I want to be a fish.

I want to swim gracefully and wide awake.

I want to open my eyes down under

and flap my excited little fingers.

I want to sway my arms in circles

or float while learning to whistle. 🙂

I want to freely move my small feet

and know what it feels to play with one’s precious breath.

I want to dance with water in a sweet rhythm.

Oh I truly, madly, deeply want to swim.

Never mind if I’ll get darker.

I know I’ll be happier (Masayang negrita. Masayang pritong isda.)

just to glide, jump, and dive wherever.


Thanks Mary for a quick yet fruitful session. Someday I’ll swim with you for real. 🙂
