The Mermaid Swims
The Mermaid swims in strength and truth
Illusive in her perfect youth
Existing whether believed or not
Dangerous in challenging what’s been taught
Sublimely balks the status quo to find a voice in what she knows
Repeating stories of sailors and whales
Come. Stay awhile in swapping tales.
Choose to make port, or if not,
But careful of the siren song
And if in the liking you find yourself
Inspired or taught, then stay
Who does your heart say you are?
What are you doing to follow your star?
When was the last time you smiled inside?
Where is the home that calls you from crying?
Why should you tarry these waters? Depends.
Abide these currents with mermaid friends.
