We All Walk Past

 

We all walk past, a silent distraught

A man in a rotten enslavement

We never give a second thought

To the man lying on the pavement

 

Slumped with sorrow, not a gleam in his eye

A sunken heart, as the days go by

He observes the flow of people go past

He tries to remember a time without fast

 

We all walk past, a silent distraught

A man in a rotten enslavement

We never give a second thought

To the man lying on the pavement

 

He wants to be normal, and have no one stare

He wants people to like him, he wants them to care

People saunter by, without even a glance

why, won’t anyone just give him a chance?

 

We all walk past, a silent distraught

A man in a rotten enslavement

We never give a second thought

To the man lying on the pavement

    Star: Gets you thinking about what those who are homeless truly feel.
    Star: Well written, I like the wording and the rhyme scheme.
    Wish: I wish that the one stanza saying “we all walk past…” wasn’t repeated so much.
