If you pass by me on the street, I look like any other girl,
So you would never guess that I came from a whole other world.
You have no idea how much it hurts to be so far away from my home,
When the only memento I have left of my birthplace is my favorite seashell comb.
I had no other choice but to leave everything that I ever knew behind,
Because of all the environmental damage and destruction that was unleashed by mankind.
Being forced to live amongst you wasteful, greedy fools is sometimes enough to make me feel sick,
Especially every time I see a grocery bag made of plastic!
Only when I'm alone in my pool can I feel even remotely free,
And close my eyes and pretend I'm back where I belong, in the sea.
Maybe some day it will be safe for me to return,
But I sincerely doubt it, since humankind still has so much to learn.
