The Beggar – Entry for Eugi’s Weekly prompt (Nov. 25,2021)

______________


finding himself with eyes pleading
lying everywhere with no place to go
on pavements cold as the morning snow
resting his soul living with sad memories aglow

different colors walking through him
slippers and shoes made no difference
he watched them move inside of him
no one felt what his hands were begging

he prayed hard that compassion would grow wings
to fly over and shower him not with earthly things
but LOVE is all he needs and everything will follow
to a soul like him a little kindness people will bestow

you don’t see it but he has his thoughts running
if you could hear his heart and read his mind, saying
my brain has too many tabs open” swarming his mind
could somebody close one tab by being kind?

too many questions seeking too many answers
without shelter, it’s a survival to the fittest
how is he going to pass the days in serious hunger
the beggar, a part of society’s essential fiber.

      1. Ever since read the book “A Street Cat named Bob” which is the story of a recovering heroin addict who takes in a street cat and they save each other, my view of homeless people has changed . I now see them completely differently and I don’t feel uncomfortable around them . There but for the grace of God it could be me.

      1. You are welcome Bacardi. That is how people used to be, charitable. Not any more or quite less. More people today seek to become wealthy then ever before. The more God allows man the more greedy and selfish man becomes, it seems.

    1. Thank you so much for the heart-warming comment . It’s true. Other things swarm the mind of a hungry beggar. Being a part of the society other forms of help make him feel he is of substance. ……… Thanks again…always on my mind you could pay a visit. ❤❤🙏🙏🙏😊😊
