Nobody's Friend


Nobody notices nobody cares
Look at the state of the clothes that he wears
His only home is the bench in the park

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this when I was 14, I am 54 now but I remember this old man I used to talk to in the local park. He had nothing but always had time to talk to me, whilst others ridiculed him I spent more and more time in his company, and then one day he didn't appear, and never did again. I miss my old friend.....I never asked his name!

    Friend, this is really an awakening poem! Man is considered as a crown of creation, why should he meet such a tragic end? It is an humble appeal for all sensitive humans to love humanity as humanity irrespective of what he is, where he is.Great theme and the flow of feelings is wonderful.Friend you must write more and more stuff like this to uproot indifferent feelings towards fellow beings. I give 10+++++ marks. (Report) Reply

    This is a very stirring poem. I feel his pain. So many look but do not see, thought provoking material. (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
