Free Verse, Poetry by Sarah

Turtle Man

I’m ok thanks.
Thanks for asking.
Oh, that’s right.
You didn’t.

I’m here for you.
I’ll support you.
But there’s no back up.
It’s all just lip service.

You dont’t really care.
Your words are badges.
Just something you
can hide behind.

So I’ll nod.
Say “Yes”.
Because you don’t want to
know how things really are.

An ostrich,
a turtle,
and you.
What do you have in common?

They said you were
a people person.
To me, you are the person
Who lets people down.
