"Transition into Ocean"

“Transition into Ocean”
By: Demaries Isom

I’m a young salmon about to leave this oh so familiar river
And enter the unknown ocean
Life is picking up, moving at a faster pace
At an up-beat motion
As I prepare to venture off on my journey
I will face obstacles and have no worries
I do not fall for lures of deception
My swift movements through the water is my only protection
I watch my brethren get slaughter by enemies of prey
Even so I don’t fall astray
I stay focus on my destination, determine to make it
No chains of doubt can hold me back
I will say again
“I’m determine to make it”
I leap over what seems impossible
Proving that all is possible
I keep on going fueled with a desire to make it
For see my family was denied the chance
I will be the first to make it
So I continue on, not for just me but my family
To make my name known by everyone
Be broadcast world widely
Sights of my final destination is in sight
Making the blows that were endured worth the fight
I enter the ocean
Crying out tears that turn to sea
From overpowering emotions to final reach my destiny
Something many don’t attain
Such a prize is a great gain
To finally reach my destination
Now with no hesitation
Its time to make a mark for my generation
Beginning of a new, to make a new
