I love your style of writing! The format is really cool, and your words flow nicely together, really making it feel like ocean waves. The meaning behind it is also really nice; I've heard the expression "a drop in the ocean" used typically in a negative way, so your poem was refreshing, and an interesting way to look at the comparison between our actions and their effects!
