Day 2: The Whale Shark

Strong and majestic is how they see me

But I am a shell of my former self

I belong in the ocean swimming and hunting

But I just float in this tank thinking of what used to be

I long for those open seas

Just swimming around senselessly

Now I make humans grin and laugh

But this is not my life’s path

I was born to roam the seven seas

Endless space, that’s the life for me

But now I swim in this tank

Never again to see my home, I think.
