Help, Save Me!

cave-dark-tunnel

Do you hear it?

It’s frightening!

Scratching, clawing,

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 pull them from their grave.

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

Will you?
