Bleeding - An anti-shark fining poem

This is a poem that deals with the very real and serious issue of shark finning. it's a poem that shows the suffering of the shark and the pointlessness of it's death. It's a sad poem but it's supposed to raise awareness.

 Please make a pledge against this on the following site; http://www.hsi.org/issues/shark_finning/

Bleeding

At the bottom of the ocean
Voiceless and defenseless
All of your body is dead weight now
Your just wait for the moment
when the light in your eyes dies away
The pain you want to swim away from
But you can’t!
No scream of hurt can come out your lungs
You drown in your own agony
During your last moments of your life
One of the most sacred part of you, you have lost
Your fins to the fishermen they are a commodity
To you they are your life
There wasn’t much of a life
You against knives
Like from a water fountain your blood gushed out
If you had been able to make tears they would have been endless

In God’s imagination you were created
In freedom born
Dying at the hand of cruelty

– to satisfy some stupid illogical greedy need
Your life is wasted away on a bowl of soup
It’s eaten and it’s gone – just like that!
It’s long forgotten about once the bowl is empty

While you died mangled in blood
White wild eyes open at the sea bed!
