Rolph David


In a world where all possess their inner light,
A truth we must hold, a principle right.
Yet if a fish, judged by the tree's great height,
Feels dumb, its heart ensnared in endless night.

In water's realm, it once did dance with grace,
In depths, it found its purpose, found its place.
But now, misplaced in this terrestrial space,
It yearns for waves, a familiar embrace.

Each gasping breath, a testament to plight,
A stranger in this world, where day meets night.
The fish, misjudged, in sorrow's shadowed might,
Believes it's foolish, never taking flight.

So let us learn from this aquatic soul,
That judgment's role can take a heavy toll.
In kindness, understanding, make us whole,
And nurture every genius to their goal.
