The Ocean

The ocean so vast
The water flowing past

Towards the shore come the waves
What is washed away
Only god saves
The ocean does every thing that it may

Peaceful, beautiful and deadly
Beasts of the ocean swim slyly
A habitat of great biodiversity
But the ocean can cause great calamity

The ocean speaks not
But bears all
We throw all we have got
The damage we cause is not small

Harmful substances released
A new range of diseases unleashed

We are a race that does not care
Love is given to others of us
We do not share
To dispose waste we rush

The ocean is kind
A place in our heart it cannot find
It provides the food we eat
Different types of aquatic meat

Heartless creatures we are
Destroying it near and far
Poisoning the ocean we continue
The result of destruction we can now view
