I believe many people are afraid of the ocean because of its unfamiliarity, however, from the impact that humans cause on the Earth, I believe we are something to be more afraid of.

Water in my eyes, it stings
Water in my mouth, it’s cold
Water in my lungs, it hurts
 

How I wish I could see through this liquid
How I wish I had gills to breathe

This blue that surrounds me is frightening.
This blue that surrounds me is inviting
How I wish I wasn’t afraid


Yet I am.

Of the feet that walk on the dirt,
Of the chemicals they seep. 

They seep into my eyes, into my mouth, into my lungs. I am terrified.
How I wish I could see through the smoke in the sky
