The sound of waves rising in the sea,
Forced me to go to the seashore,
I felt the sparkling ocean has sweetly called me,
The scent of the wet golden sand,
And the beauty of the ocean captivated me.
I was engrossed in seeing the beauty of the ocean,
Suddenly something caught my attention,
It was a glass bottle buried in the golden sand,
Inside which a mysterious letter was visible,
I was surprised to see the letter inside the bottle.
The enthusiasm to read that letter started awakening in me,
What would have been written in that letter?
Then slowly I picked up that bottle,
Opened the bottle and took out the letter from it,
I opened the letter and started reading the message written in it.
I was surprised to read that message,
It was written in that letter,
“Please don’t make the ocean dirty”,
Don’t throw garbage or plastic bottles in it,
Don’t kill small and big creatures living inside the ocean.
It was not just a message,
It was the hidden pain of the ocean,
Someone had given a message to explain,
The suffering of the ocean and the creatures living in it,
Truly this message made me feel the pain of the ocean.
