Lost Fish

I was never good at speaking
it was always a frustrating
thing to me.
Uncle Louie described me
as standoffish,
back when I was a kid…
but I was just a lost fish,
scared of other in the sea.

I observed the others.
I looked up to my brother
and I thank God for my
father and mother
I felt like we had to look out
for one another…
Very peculiar we all were
for sure.

But maybe that’s why I love
a good mystery
cause isn’t that what we all are?
Once just an egg
in our mother’s mother’s belly,
just a salmon
swimming upstream
trying to find our way
back to U and I and me.
and I have faith…
I believe someday
it will be.
