This is a poem about the dangers of plastic and their tiny size floating in the ocean beds. I write this note so you may stop creating this common threat for all and will always focus on an alternative solution.

A great stagger is fired as microplastic loads on the seafloor,

Tiny in size how they travel into our ultimate fate,

Gazing how bad is the problem,

This bale embedded an hole in our precious oceans,

Now floating rubbish corralled behind this marine plastisphere,

Musing as they munch interacts into another possible colony up the food chain,

Smaller ones as eaten by a variety of marine wildlife at low levels,

From plankton to crustaceans and fish in this rhapsody,

In deep-sea sediments this material deteriorates its estimated weight,

How high the microplastic loads were there,

Sinks the ocean currents and their natural movement live into vulnerable hotspots,

Mussels and other invertebrates may colonize the plastic so it no longer floats,

How bad the broken problematic zones changes,

Not only geology and physical features of the seabed,

On the ocean’s surface how plastic pollution can harm,

The marine ecosystems sink unbreathable into these indigestible smaller pieces,

Other wildlife and human health entangling from this hopelessness listens,

When we throw bottlecaps and food wrappers are common on land,

And end up our precious oceans,

Our environmental sustenance entering into this dark chasm,

We must find new ways to clean up our mess, 

This clutch expected to increase in coming years,

We all have a role to play to stop using so much plastic,

Reusing, refusing and recycling are our alternatives,

Let us clean up this rubbish and focus our attention,

Everyday this must make our attention for finding a durable solution,

That we must quit our plastic habit as they lessen pollution,

And make a positive contribution for the race,

One day the living earth will before their fearless fight,

In future when plastic with miles crossed into our insecurity,

Will be made into an innovative material influence and avoid the bad already done.
