I wish I was a mermaid.
I would take the tears I've caused and the tears I've shed, and fill the ocean with them.
I'd be strip off the lies I've told others, the ones I've told myself, all the ones that I dress in each day.
I'd no longer have to use my feet to walk on nails and eggshells trying to please others, but instead dipping them into the calming waters, to watch them slowly become one so that swimming against the current, won't be out of the ordinary.
And when it's time for me to die, I'd just turn into foamy white bubbles that lap of the feet of others, encouraging them to join me as they become mermaids too...
