A Shark Attitude



I am like a shark, built like a shark 
If I am not pushing past, dynamic speed  
The norm with vigour and fight of a warrior 


With confidence mixed in fuel of strive 
Like a high breed, built for the course 
Speed lane, salt lake, land records 


To walk gallantly on ropes 
Like a circus performer with tricks 
Believing in his own hype to walk on water 


Then I will slowly fade 
Shadows into procrastination 
Sunk into the depths of despair 


With frustration anchoring 
Heavy to the sea bed, like a debt collector's grip 
Fed on, by the fish vultures of the sea  


I am like a shark 
If I do not swim, I will drown 
With closed gills I will drown, drown I say

  3. This has a strong sense of voice, and I really enjoyed how you got into the skin of the shark as seen from a human perspective. You can use your description to describe the way that some others might live their lives, or feel about themselves. I found the following line very intriguing, which kind of anchors what goes before and after in the narrative:

    With frustration anchoring
    Heavy to the sea bed, like a debt collectors grip
    Fed on by the fish vultures of the sea
