I don't belong here

In this underwater world

My legs kicking out fast

Not knowing if the breath is the last

The natives are beautiful

Gliding with their scaled tails

Gem like eyes, golden hair

How could I ever compare

They try to ignore me

But their fury boils up

Either join the pack

Or run, run and don't look back

Tails are right, legs are wrong

Learn how it must be

My smile fades, my eyes fall down

The mermaids laughing as I drown
