Help.
I’m falling
Frozen.

 

Mouth frozen shut,

I can't shout for you.

I can't scream for your help.


Underneath your feet,
I’m drowning
Hoping you might see me.
But not just see me
But save me.

 

Help.
The current is pulling me back.
Not just the current pulling me
But the current thoughts in my head.

They are dragging me under

 

Help.
I’m falling
Frozen.

I hope this inspires people to see those who can't speak up. I want people to try to notice the ones who are quiet and to not let them fall frozen by ignoring them, letting them drown.
