I once was a clear blue sea.
I played tag with the wind.
I flew with the birds.
You swam safely in me.
But now you are preoccupied,
You make more,
And there is where you went wrong.
My once sparking turquoise waves are now thick with plastic.
I am no longer beauty.
My animals are dying.
The albatross is full.
Maybe you too will be full one day.
How many more lives will be taken before you realize?
You said I’d be fine!
You said I’d survive!
I am dying.
I begged but no one was listening!
I cried but no one was listening!!
I screamed but no one was listening!!!
Please, listen to me!!!!
