Ariel's Sacrifice

Wed, 07/19/2017 - 17:43 -- 116l

Once upon a time,

there was a girl.

Who lived in the grime

along with the pearls.

 

She lived in the sea,

and was nothing but stuck.

Breathing in debris 

under all of the muck.

 

She wished to be,

a mermaid no more.

So she could be free

from the ocean's vast floor

 

But if she were a person,

she realized with grief.

She would only worsen

the polluted barrier reef.

 

 

This poem is about: 
Our world
