Estelle Afonso, Grade 7, John Septimus Roe Community School -
And so I dive. I feel the ocean’s cold, cruel water enveloping my body. I see the the forms of the seaweed around me, or maybe those of the many fish who live down here, in the cold depths of the ocean. I’ve barely dived twenty metres and it’s already started to get dark. I have trouble seeing but I keep swimming downward into the murky depths of the ocean. It’s at the bottom that I will find what I have been searching for, and what I need. I am tired of being teased relentlessly by non believers, people who refuse to listen. I search for Poseidon, my father and the answer to all of my problems.
