Sinking in quicksand

Sinking in quicksand

I’ve learnt not to struggle

I wait patiently to be saved

I hope you see me slipping under

And I hope you throw a lifeline to me

For if roles were reversed is do the same thing

So don’t walk past ignoring and act blind to me

Please follow your heart and do the right and compassionate thing

And be the saviour of the day to me

So we can share a moment of kinship as well as humanity

Don’t leave me and watch me from a distance sink

Watch my head as it goes under

And stare in curiosity

This is too cruel and will shame you life

Knowing you chose not to do a good deed

And to demonstrate your descency.
