More Poetry >>

I look out before me  and  see a world
in need of help. I look into vacant eyes
to many to count.

Empty shells with a hand out cause their
belly's still need fed, wandering lost in city
parks and alleys hoping to find a bed.

They are the forgotten ones or at best are
to be avoided. Robbed and fall victims to
beatings that are gang supported.

Who are these people who have fallen
to the curb and walked over, never once
finding their four leaf clover.

Someone’s child, sister or brother, perhaps
a person’s mother or father,  But to society
their seen as a bother.

Could it be they are the lost and denied
pieces of you and me? Left wandering
in a  hopeless and damned reality...
