Haley, Age 12, Beaverton, OR

Waves slap the sandy shore
of a quiet beach on a warm summer's night
A be-jeweled sky is
painted above
Only to distract us from
the destruction within the ocean.
Serene and glittering
On the surface,
A deep blue only found in nature
But inside
Living creatures are dying,
Beautiful objects are killing
and secrets are locked inside.
Some of us plunge in the
horrible beauty,
And others only choose to admire from
a distance.
The ocean is like life, it seems.
Only once you venture in,
do you begin to see reality.
