Think twice before envy of another's life brings you only regrets

UNDERNEATH THERE IS ONLY LOVE

Walking down by the rocks
the ones that rest below the docks
is a place where minnows swim and play
and seagulls walk their turf by day
as they search for treasures left behind
bits and morsels they hope to find

This is the place I go to be
calm and retrospective of the sea
quiet times to reminisce
of a life I dearly miss

Stranded here on the shore alone
picking at the keys of my cell phone
no one to answer my request
I am the coast's new permanent guest

Why I traded my tail for a life on land
so I could learn to walk on sand
something that I thought I needed to be
a life of a human not harnessed by the sea

Underneath there is only love
here on land people push and shove
always needing and wanting more
disrespecting mermaid lore
let me go back where I belong
where i can sing my mermaid song
