Do you see us suffering?

Getting stuck in plastic bags

getting slashed by metal scraps

we swim around in what we called our home

my stomach is yelling for sea grass not straws

I swim away from fishing nets

and divers with big cages

I see my friends tied up in knots with plastic twine around them

I hope one day I see the surface

and the sun will shine through this dark angry sea

but for now I live in a big trash can

waiting for things to change

but I question the living above the surface

”do you see us suffering?”

  1. I LOVE THIS POEM! I love how it can relate to any situation, and sends a message. I still can’t get over the last line, it gives me chills because it is soo good.
