I live on the outside
of a world shaped fishbowl
and spend my days
looking in
at the fish within
trying to understand thier ways.

I watch them swim
all day long in the fishbowl
some move quickly
and others slow
and I know
the wonder of it will forever last.

I try hard to read
the tiny minds in the fishbowl
to gain
a philosophy
of thier atrocity
and understand thier every pain.

I'll never understand
those little fish in the fishbowl
for all I've known
and seen
they've never been
at all like me... alone
