What must if feel like
being stuck in an endless ocean,
treading through the waves
searching for a bottom
so you can rest your tired legs.
You look up at the sky,
searching for a sign of help;
the roar of a helicopter,
or a boat crashing past the waves
combing the murky waters
trying to find something of you.
But no one is coming.
No one is listening.
No one cares.
Or at least that's what you think.
After all, no one's shown up yet
and you're still treading water,
keeping your head up,
for even a glimmer of hope.
But maybe they're not coming back.
And you're now being left for dead
in an uncaring ocean
filled with ruthless carnivores
and monsters of the deep.
You want to look them in the eye,
search for a sign of compassion.
But there's no light.
Like the dark waters surrounding you,
you only dive deep
into an endless ocean
of hate, disgust,
