“Young Fisherman”by Eureka C.Bianzon

I stretch,sway,with my small elbows bend
Throwing away the rod making the water splash
Waiting for a good catch as I do more often
Hoping this day won’t give me a great clash

While sitting alone, I suddenly remember
The lessons I’ve learned from my father
Be calm, be sincere, if you want a good catch
Be patient,be quiet and still

The last time I’ve caught so small
This time I’m so lucky for I’ve got so big
Struggling on fishing is not an easy task at all
Expect whether big or rather appreciate little things

I’m a young fisherman
But I’m deeper than my age
I have many good thoughts from my innocent mind
When I grow up I can do more than a fisherman’s trade
