Sonnet for the Marlin

The tranquil flow of my own existence,
Swimming in the silent depths of the sea,
Cut short by a man of such persistence,
That I must fight for a chance to be free.

I have the courage, I'm stoic to pain.
I've done this before, I know I can win.
Having nothing to lose, my life to gain,
With "grace under fire," I cannot give in.

By overcoming the oceans current,
No man could underestimate my might.
The hook in my mouth is no deterrent
In my goal to be victor in this fight.

I am a fish unlike all of the rest.
I will endure, and put him to the test.
