The Lonely Dreamer

To the lonely dreamer who writes to stay afloat,
but who knows there’s holes in the boat,
who smiles when the mirror cracks,
who sticks fingertips with thumbtacks,
the hopeless believer,
the unacknowledged achiever,
the background dancer,
the poetic free-lancer,
I give you a salute and praise
that will hopefully dilute
the oppression that
halts your beautiful blooming
