Running with the scent,
digging up a bone.
Its a prize, its recognition or reward.
An unknown commodity, a risk

Incredibly terrified, a fish out of water
flipping and flopping from hope to dissapointment and
Fighting to be free in the sea,

Absolutely invincible, a teenager haunted by hormones,
chasing a trend, from end to end,
Ignoring the warning,
