Fishing is not about what you catch, but what you experienced while catching it.


 


In a little town not known to all


Lives the life of a boy so young


When the rooster crows to wake the sun


Off to the shore he set to sail


 


The waves roughly smashing on the riverbank


Lighting and thunder echoing in the mid air


Even the fishes was frighten by the day


But on as a fisherman he sailed


 


Deep down the ocean borders


He set his trap


Hoping to catch a meal or two


But with the waves driving the fishes


He pulled out with only a baby shrimp


 


On his arrival home


Mama has already prepared the meal so full


So with the little shrimp he had


He went back to the river to let it go


 


Itís all about fishing.
