Stage directions/acting tips for Shakespeare's The Tempest? PLEAS HELP?!?

I am reciting Act I, scene ii as Miranda from The Tempest.

My monologue:

If by your art, my dearest father, you have
Put the wild waters in this roar, allay them.
The sky, it seems, would pour down stinking pitch,
But that the sea, mounting to th' welkin's cheek,
5 Dashes the fire out. Oh, I have suffered
With those that I saw suffer. A brave vessel
Who had, no doubt, some noble creature in her
Dashed all to pieces. Oh, the cry did knock
Against my very heart! Poor souls, they perished.
10 Had I been any god of power, I would
Have sunk the sea within the earth or ere

It should the good ship so have swallowed and
The fraughting souls within her.

What do you suggest?
Miranda is suppose to be emotional, compassionate, empathetic, naive…
I was thinking of a slightly accusing, pleading tone in the beginning.
The “alley them!” slightly demanding.
Increase emotion at “Oh, I have suffered”… internal agony, slow tone speed of talking.

But I don't know how to end in the piece…
When I practise, it sounds adrupt. I know that Prospero replies in the play, but I'm suppose to finish off there..

PLEASE help?
