Arlo and the Orca

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 tears dripping on your face

Water and cold air


Tears running down your face

Like a cold 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,a raining day
