Mermaid short monologue writing inspired by art

a short monologue

I hold an empty shell to my ear and listen to the whispers of the world above. I yearn to understand and know what they speak about, what do they dream, what do they feel? I wonder if they care like we do and love as much. So many fear them, but I want to know them, I wish to unlock their secrets. Their whispers speak to me without words, calling me, drawing me closer. I hope to gain their trust and unlock their mysteries. I will show everyone there is nothing to fear. I will make them our friends and bring our people together. When we show kindness, we see kindness. When we show respect, we see respect. When we show fear, we see fear, and hate, and anger… I trust you… and you will learn to trust me… come… come into the waters and hold my hand… and I will lead you into our hearts.
