Albatross Child {Poem}

I’m watching the magical albatross
With her fluffy coat and clumpsy step
Waiting for the time to spread her majestic wings
Lifted by the wind to cross the endless ocean

Starting life on her own
This adorable albatross child
With her stomach full of sadness

I’m watching the albatross
Her brothers and sisters are suffering
Until death releases them from their pain
Until death lifts their weakened wings

There’s a killer out there
Made by human hands
Wanted by human wants
That never stop wanting

The albatross child closes her eyes now
Her feathered wings unable to carry her to rise in the sky
Only death could make them soar
And the oceans turn red

Albatross babies with plastic inside
It doesn’t take long before it’s there
The suffering
The lifting by death’s wings

I’m watching this cowardly killed albatross child
I whisper words of salvation nobody hears
but the heavens above
I whisper no more suffering

I whisper compassion
I whisper truth
I whisper awakening
I whisper a new time

I whisper hope that screams

I whisper magic

And I howl love.
