The waves brushed against the sea shore, 

Pardon me, there is no sea shore. 

Desolation.


A hidden Atlantis, treasured under the sea,

We are unable to see the rescue boats tracing the surface. 

Devastation.


News reporters from around the world, 

Click, click, click, flashing cameras, discussions,

Click, click, click, switching channels to watch the latest trending sitcom

No Realization



“Our home it’s just...gone”, she said.

A little girl, two rummaged piglets. Eyes twinkling with terror; knowing that all is lost, and she’s been found.

Beyond imagination.


Description: 

“Submerged” spreads awareness about the global issue of climate change and how it continues to impact the world. The poem recalls a young girl’s experience after the unprecedented destruction of her home. This short and captivating piece further mocks the helpless purpose of the media: reporting the tragedy for the whole world to spectate and casually switch channels soon after.


[The End]
