A Mermaids Destiny

 

Blue moon lake

I’ll do whatever it take’s

To see it with my own eyes

Glimmering through the night.

 

The moon is as blue as ever

And  so are the stars

I hear people talk about it

Saying it is, too far.

 

I can watch from the Sea

Oh! the wonderous lake

Alas I cannot reach it

So here in the sea I lay.

 

but I am a mermaid

I cannot escape the sea

Never, will I see the lake

So I wish to be free.

 

Crabs and whales

With them I play

As, I think mournfully

About the blue moon lake.

 

 

So I adventure

Step out of the sea

Learn how to walk, and talk

I am finally free.

 

Learned to walk

but I don’t know where I am

walking on the sand

I know I am on land.

 

As the sun sets

My legs disappeared

I see a witch standing in front of me

I am facing my greatest fear.

 

I’m trembling

she needs my blood

I dive, right into the sea

Making a flood.

 

In the lake which is in the sea

Which nobody knows

Beyond, the wall

the energy of the lake does flow.

 

Keeping it a secret

I’ll never tell

Except a little tortoise

Peeking out of it’s shell.
