Fisherman's Belief

Written by: Aruna Srinivasan

Amidst the thunders and in the rain shower,

Still the feeling to go and be ahead the lightened tower,

Why Oh fisherman, do you wish to trade this water,

For you know today the weather doesn’t look any safer,

But he said, in my heart all I can remember,

Is the joy it would bring if I can fetch fish for my kid’s dinner.

This place is no new to me,

Every day my life cycles around the same, you see,

I hold the belief that no matter what, I will find

As to this place I am affined,

So I say don’t fear, O dear,

As I see there is neither harm nor any barrier,

It is just a race to prove my self,

Else my confidence would then become small like an elf,

So don’t stop me and show me fear,

For I know when I return I would hear you cheer,

It would then bring a freedom in all our minds,

For I believe in the aim and not let the obstacles make me blind!
