An Aquatic Nightmare ... Please Help!!!

Dearest Hive reader,
I beg you to help me interpret a recurring nightmare that has been haunting my nights for the last few weeks.
I drew the picture above to help readers envision the horrific details of this incredible dream.
In this story I am happily swimming in the plankton feeding on the algae and krill. I am the yellow one in the lower right corner of the image.
Okay, maybe I've been feasting on a little too much krill of late. I admit, I've been feel tight around gills.
Anyway, I am happily feeding on the creatures of the sea when I look below me and I see two lines of sharp white objects below.
I look up and see another two lines of sharp objects above!
I panic and begin wiggling as fast as possible as I try to dart into the coral.
I feel a pressure swoosh behind me then a terrible pain through my spine as the monstrous creature stalking me takes a bite of my tail fin.
I am now in a state of complete and utter terror.
I wiggle as fast as my little body can wiggle.
I try to dart into a crevice where I've hidden in the past.
But, as I said, I've been eating just a little too much krill of late and can no longer fit in my protective sanctuary.
I feel that my only hope is to swim into the open sea. Hopefully I can join a school of minnows for protection.
But I find myself lethargic and slow and unable to keep up with the other minnows.
I wiggle as fast as I can but I feel anemic and unable to dart about.
I would be the victim if the grey creature returned.
Again, I think it is the large amount of krill I've been eating. What ever it is, I feel that my gills are too weak and I simply cannot get enough oxygen in my blood.
I look up and see a strange light in the breaking through the waters above.
In school I had learned to avoid the light as scary things happen in the light.
After all one finds safety in the nooks and crannies of the coral.
But what am I to do? I find myself abandoned and exposed.
Yes, I know that I was taught in school to avoid the light. But suddenly it seems that the light is my only hope and savior.
I point myself upward and begin swimming toward the light.
I feel my gills closing up and I try my hardest to wiggle and wiggle in my upward dash for survival.
There is danger all around me in the open sea, but this seems my only hope.
Then it hits. I start feeling an intense pain in the back of my skull.
It is as if something is drilling a hole in the back of my head.
The unending fear.
What is happening to me?!?!?
Please, help me interpret this horrific nightmare. Am I doomed?
As for the Artwork
I ended up being rushed in drawing the picture. I took two photos as proof of art.
My method was to look at a bunch of pictures of aquatic scenes online. I then went into another room where I drew a large grey monster attacking in innocent little minnow. I used prismacolor pencils to color in the creatures and hastily added some color to the coral and the sea.
I appreciate any help in interpreting this nightmare.
Take more time to digest what you eat, don't be too greedy as you can get in trouble. my light interpretation. : )
anyway, that is a nice drawing you made there.
The counter argument is that one should snap at every vesting share that one can get ... after all ... it is all fungible.

This night mare is really a dip one huh, I'm still trying to figure out what the pain was at the end,the Minor was just doing is thing has one need to eat and survive, the big guy I guess was hungry as well😊, this one is really complicated for me!
The minnow was eating krill; so I don't think it can claim a moral high ground over the dolphin feasting on minnows.
I suspect that the shrinking gills, the hole being drilled in the back of the head, the anemic feeling and the need to swim toward the surface are all connected.
@hivebuzz shows my account is pretty much all 9s; I don't think I will know the answer to this puzzle until later.
I feel that my days as a minnow are numbered.
