Oh, how majestic the deep blue is!
Both beautiful and dangerous
With fishes swimming along with the waves
And snakes hiding beneath the caves
Truly, the ocean is a vast bowl of mystery
But what is happening to its beauty?
The heart of our planet, the giver, the protector
Is now losing the colors of its home
Once populated with vibrant hues of innocence,
Now polluted with a man’s negligence
Why do we keep on damaging those that are not ours?
Why must we destroy those that save us?
The ocean gives a spirit of tranquility
But the ocean, too, can strike us with a wild misery
What have we done? What can we do?
There are zero reasons to relax and zillion ways to act
One is to begin with the value of discipline
A discipline as simple as keeping our trash in the proper bin
