Then Mermaids Hear Their Final Call;
Hm. I've started my day the same,
Much like any of the ones before.
I would take one look outside my window
And wait for something different to happen.
But this morning, instead of looking, I left.
How are my days to be different?
Maybe I shall keep on waiting.
The time for change will start now.
I can't be patient for another fraction of time.
My body and heart may belong to the ocean,
But my mind is with the world above us.
Today I will take action and finally live among "the walker's"
Though my young state, I've never belonged here.
But I can hear it.
The singing of the mermaids coursing through my brain.
"Do not go" they always say "you are with us"
Even though I hear these voices in a beautiful melody,
There's always one sound that never quite fits.
It's a quiet voice, but sings louder than the others.
A girl from some where far calls to me.
She tells me my place is no longer with the sea.
I believe her.
Every morning I would hear her,
And every day that passes by, her voice grows fainter,
Swallowed by the sweet songs of the mermaids and creatures,
Singing to me for guidance and strength.
I can no longer offer them anything.
Today I want nothing more than to escape the blue waters,
Exit this war of mine and follow the girl into peace.
Today, I belong to "the walkers"
Down here, I'm suppressed, limited.
Unable to think for myself.
My people, they're no longer mine.
I've controlled this world with my power,
Now I give my power to them.
They would look to me and ask for help,
So I would guide them with my voice.
But this time, I'm the one being guided.
Sung to by a strange voice
That I look towards for guidance.
I've been inspired to do much more than wait.
To live a life of immortality, Just wasted,
Is no option I've ever desired.
I will sing to my people once more.
I will tell them, that they are free from one less voice,
But my heart will live on in the sea,
To guide and help them.
This is my final call,
Before my tail will die,
To be reborn into tails that can walk.
So I can live among "the walkers".
"Finally... I can be free"
