Others noticing the distress call
ships pass in the night
It's as if my message is not heard
am I doing it wrong?
Are they just not listneing?
it feels like lowered shields
Are not being noticed
by the connections I've created
And left at the same time
have we become so busy
That we are ignoring each other?
where we might hear the message
But are too scared or selfish to answer?
i even fall into that trap
And I feel like I've created a bad trend
I only want to be heard and noticed
want to get that job I've applied for
Want to help the person who's hand i'm reaching out to
it just seems like i only get a wink and a nod...
I'll keep you in mind
i'll talk to you soon
i don't hear from them again
Are we failing in that one thing
that even job recruiters and advisers tell us?
To utilize our networks?
i'm trying to do that now
And for those few times I'm able to succeed
i'm left with more failures behind me
I've branded and re-branded
tried to find that.....
to get them to see
That I'm the honest businesswoman
that I'm credible
That I deserve the credit....
or at LEAST acknowledgements too
But, I'm not
and it makes me sad
Makes me wonder who my friends and networks really are
makes ponder who else I need to let go from my life
So, I can find the genuine help, article, truth
instead of what I'm seeing and holding onto before me
makes me lose faith in humanity
More than I care to count
makes me mad at how we are ruled today
Where we are forced to give up the microphone
to speak our minds
Fight for what we believe in
screaming to our represenatives and anyone who'll listen
About our demands
It feels like we are screaming
at a plated glass window
Where no matter how loud we scream
they can't hear us on the other side
That's what I'm feeling now
and i wish that window was shattered to pieces
