Lost souls


Booze and fags and scallywags
Is what he's come to meet,
Hags and rags and paper bags
Blowing in the street.

A night so dark, a filthy spark
It's all so real to see.
A silent bark, another park,
Can lost souls also be free?

A constant whining, no fine dining,
He's not a friend, nor foe.
His body's pining, no silver lining
He has no home to go.

    People slip thru our systems for many reasons often because they are in no mental state for busy people in adminstration to cope with. A stark reminder here from an amazing poet.

    Very good write. Yes you are so right that in this day and age there are still homeless people.

  • Nicholas Browning

    What is a lost soul if not the embodiment of freedom? At least they have the option to start down another path. I envy them in a way. It's still not okay to see so many people suffer because of life's infrequence though.
