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
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
