Someone Like Me


if I were writing to someone like me
I wouldn't know where to begin
I wouldn't understand my silence
or why I can't let others in

giving support would seem alright
and even some humor as well
but if I answered with nothing
then, it would be hard to tell

hopefully I would not give up
yet, that would be asking a lot
for no one can keep trying to help
if emptiness is all I've got

Poem of the Day

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
