Fish Out of Water

Untitled - Michio Morimoto

In a sea full of creatures
Each one unique, yet each has a companion.
I look around me, at the blues, greens, and corals
Looking for the colors that echo inside me.
Sometimes I spot a hint of a shade,
But it quickly floats away.
In a sea full of colors
That do not match my own.
