Alone On The Streets


She carried the whole world slung on her back
Some threadbare clothes in a rotten old sack.

    So sympathizing it was, just I'm touched. Lovely detailing.
    But sometimes I feel that there is no explanation to misfortune. (Report) Reply

    A good poet is the one who could feel for others and put it in words. I love it.

    I invite you to read my poems sometimes. Thanks

    A fantastic poem, sadly it's the world we live in. All the councils in
    England are too worried about rock concerts and bike races to be
    have time to worry about people who live in their town or city. (Report) Reply

    This is an excellent write David. You described a situation of living
    in the street with good details. We are very fortunate to have roofs
    over our heads and family that cares for us. Some of them made a
    choice to live like that but the majority fell on misfortune or took a
    wrong turn. God still loves them also. A thought provoking write. (Report) Reply

    Interesting character painting here. In the old days, it seemed children dreamed of running away
    to join the circus..now they dream of having a home with (impossible dream!) two parents.. (Report) Reply

    Pathetic condition for a person. But I believe God is always interested in us and can change our situation if we invite him. This world is not a home. (Report) Reply

    I took your advice on reading this poem and I must say it was amazing. My poem I Dont Know Jack really has a resemblance to your poem. (Report) Reply
