Lady of the Sea

Long ago, alongside whales and dolphins
Swimming carefree beneath ocean waves
Peculiar beings entrapped me
Forcefully brought me to shore
Positioned their trophy
Permanently still
Clothed into stone
Numb abode
My heart grieves
For source of life
Direct gaze to sea
In the absence of breath
How can I reclaim my heart
Will strangers ever part with me
Respect appeal from Whales and Dolphins
Grant my spirit a return to the sea
