Help! Save Me!


Do you hear it?

It’s so frightening!

Scratching, clawing, kicking, screaming,

as if something buried alive

is trying desperately to survive.

Do you see it?

Common sense and decency,

respect, trust, humility –

are all trying to find their way to light.

They’ve been buried for so long

I’m afraid all hope is gone.

But wait!

I’ll reach out, I’ll be brave –

try to draw them from their grave.

I’ll do my very best to set them free.

Will you?

I think some of us need an attitude replacement!
