Here is another collaborative poem written by Room 8 following the events of Arlo and the Orca, this poem expresses our feelings about sadness, walking in the shoes of Arlo and his mother, from the book Arlo and the Orca written by Monique Walker.



Cold tear dripping on your face 

Water and cold air 


Tears running down your face

Like a cooled gust of wind

You are no one.

Tears dropping out of your eyes

Into the ocean

Salty tears


You’ve had enough  

Crying salty tears and sweat

Bitter feeling of guilt, depression and regret

Sadness is blue, raining day, sadness is nothing but pain
