Mermaid's Choice

Petite fish in the sea,

little mermaid so lonely,

wallows in watery ennui.


Enough's enough and life is tough.

little mermaid suck it up.

devil says, here's my choice.

choose my freedom or choose my voice.


Petite lady on the land,

wind in hair, toes in sand.

little mermaid take my hand.


Done is done, but don't give up.

don't let your tears run amok. 

expression has many parts.

little mermaid took up arts.
