A Not So Silent Sea

by Seth Weinfield

A friendly school of fish swims by

and whales sing a beautiful song

One sense rules all

In a not so silent sea

 

Lurking below the surface

A cacophony of noise

A day of infamy

In a not so silent sea

 

Every animal has a voice

a soul

a song

In a not so silent sea

Whales harmonies destroyed

 

We are Heirs to Our Oceans

Proud to be entrusted 

To make a change in the world

 

Awestruck by experts

I am inspired

To use every part of myself

To represent voices unheard

In a not so silent sea

 

I dream of a life-filled ocean

full of mesmerizing creatures of the deep

Saltwater touching the tip of my tongue

a peaceful ocean

in my hands

 

We are Heirs to Our Oceans

We will make a stand

 

We will use our voices

We will sing our songs

In a not so silent sea

We cannot stay silent

 

With the world as our classroom

We can be the change we want to see

 

To our heirs

We will leave a beautiful whale song

Oceans healed

One sense rules all by

In a not so silent sea.
