Eat healthy. Excersize daily. Die anyway.

Every time I walk into the store
It always seems like pets galore
Dogs are here and cats are there
Lizards and parrots are everywhere

As I walk along the aisles I see
Many fish that swim before me
I walk to the counter to a water filled dish
And there I see a blue beta fish

That beta fish is a lonely soul
Swimming alone in that small, empty bowl
Its blue shiny tail flipping about
Soggy fish flakes tickling its snout

Then suddenly that beta fish is I
I have to leave now, I say goodbye
The love I have grown for that simple being
Has given my life a whole new meaning

I like the poem. It's cutesy and rhymey, but the last couple of stanza's left me confused. I think that you could have made a much longer poem out of it. Keep it up , you did a great job!

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

I don't understand the first line of the last stanza. Also, i feel that the poem ends too quickly that there is more that you want to say here. Why has it given your life a whole new meaning? You may expand on that if you wanted. This is a very cute poem and it flowed like water from a faucet! :)

Fall in love or fall in hate; Get inspired or be depressed; Ace a test or flunk a class; Make babies or make art; Speak the truth or lie and cheat; Dance on tables or sit in the corner; Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Breathe. And enjoy the ride...
