Melissa the MermaidNear the Hawaiian Islands there lived a tween mermaid named Melissa. She had long curly light-brown hair, bright green eyes, and an orange tail. She wore a short pearl necklace with a starfish in the middle. Melissa was playful and full of energy, all her fellow merfolk loved her.
One day, Melissa and a few of her friends were playing tag near the surface. A fisherman saw Melissa and dropped a net over her! The young mermaid frantically tried to untangle the net, but to no avail. “Help me, please!”, Melissa cried out to her pals. They were just about to try and free her when the fisherman pulled her up on his boat and set sail back to land.
The captured mermaid was placed in a tank at an aquarium. The fisherman who caught her received a large sum of money, and he became famous very fast. As for Melissa, she immediately became the aquarium’s biggest attraction. Humans from around the world came to see her.
The mazeLost but never found
Captive but never bound
I just can't break free
Of whatever is inside of me
My thoughts continue to roam
I feel like I am so far from home
My heart speeds up it's pace
As I realize I am trapped inside a maze
I keep on running but after every bend
All I see is another dead end
I feel like I have been here before
Still unable to find the door
Is there no way out of here?
