Homeless Old Man

Homeless old man
Neglected by humanity
Lost in the wilderness of his mind
Wandering the streets aimlessly
Pleading for a crust of bread
Desperate, despairing,
Exhausted, tired, hungry
Once a soldier
Now abandoned to soldier on
Craving for waves of kindness and compassion to wash over him
Yet left in a pool where there is little peace

  1. Very good G. That hits home. The two soldier lines are very clever.

  2. Wow. the once a solider and solider on … powerful poetic surprise and yet, so horribly common.
