The Dance of New Life

Today my life begins,
i now forget my past,
all the terrible things that happened,
i feel relief from them at last.

I dance for her to come to me,
for her to see i care,
she swims slowly but then hides,
disappearing like smoke in air.

Accelerating heartbeat,
energy cimbing,
this is it,
what i have worked for my whole life...

Every bettas dream is now not such a dream anymore...

The dance is over but now another begins

Our dance was finished and she disappeared,
And within the foam i had created...
lay the life that this spiritual dance, this ceremony, this historical event,
this great moment in history...had created.

Every bettas dream...to take their life and use it to create another...
Wish understood that didn't she?
She knew that was what would truly complete my life,
I wonder what Wish will do now?

Day and night visited many times.

Finally my own works of art swam before me,
i flared at my long finned art and gazed in awe at the short finned,
it was wonderful,
i had been granted everything i had wanted thanks to Wish.

Wish, did you return to the stars from where you came?

Day and night,
dark and light,
spring and sum,
winter and autumn.

All are not to be taken for granted.

Food
loving water,
swimming space,
Life

All are not to be taken for granted.
All are not to be taken for granted!!!

Burning water,
no seasons,
endless starvation,
corpses surrounding me.

That was all coming back to my mind.

She still wasn't there...Wish hadn't come back for 30 days.
My water began to grow angry at me,
I grew hungry,
my beautiful fins were turning to nothing.

My artwork was gone... their water had killed them.
One of my own friends murdered the ones i cared for...
and yet dominated and surrounded me.
It was punishing me for Wish not returning.

It wanted to torture me and so it did.
It wanted to slowly kill me and let me watch my loved ones die,
it wanted me to suffer for my one fatal mistake:
I took everything for granted

Wish......did the stars take you back?

Final Breathes and a Goodbye

I lay alone in an abandoned place,
the water that was once clear and loving,
the dark that was once light,
the ruins of a utopia.

I am the last survivor of my kind,
alone in this ancient masterpiece that's been wrecked again and again,
Wish has not come back for many days and nights.

I see a faint figure in the distance,
she comes to me silently,
then dissapears miraculously,
i wish to follow her.

So i say goodbye, farewell, and so long,
to this place that i used to call home,
because i have a new road to take,
the road to the stars.

Although my life has been bitter-sweet,
I have truly been blessed surely,
so goodbye to this lost world,
the last of my kind soon will depart.

"Wish....can you see me?"......."Is this place the stars?"

THE END

(Sad yet happy at the same time huh? Well i hope everybody enjoyed my rendition of what the life of a betta might be like through their eyes!)
