I'm on a ship
that's sinking
I don't know how to swim

I've launch some flares
to give some sign
my feelings deep within

Each flare I've launched
Has not been seen
by those close enough to see

Each one I think
brighter than the last
only fade with no call to me

My flares are gone
and all thats left
are red slivers on my skin

I don't know now
how else to show
my feelings deep within

Wow. That's beautifully expressed.

Not being able to reach out is lonely, but it's so much lonelier when you reach out the only ways you can, and nobody picks up what you're trying to say.

I hope you feel heard here. Hang on--the ship is coming.

Posting your poem was a good way to start, wasn't it? As for the others, I have found that sometimes people don't know what I am doing when I reach out to them. It's difficult, of course. We hesitate and often reach out tentatively, for fear of being hurt, and others just don't pick up on our signal.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
