If a Fish falls out of the water


If a fish falls out of the water, does the ocean cry?
A question that creates hordes of others to comply
For me it does as fish comes from the womb of ocean
How would a mother not weep when it’s child’s deprived of Sun
Every bit of her soul cries as its blood drips on sand
But she knows to control, moves on for rest of her clan
Something dies in her with each fish with similar fate
Haven’t you seen the gray clouds gather to recriminate
A sad rain pours its heart in ocean’s womb to mourn their end
Only a sensitive heart could fathom and comprehend
