A Blind Beggar Poem by yoonoos peerbocus

A Blind Beggar

Rating: 4.4


Eye sockets mere bruises
Alike to closed fists
Save whole being tangled
In his last rags
All else dissolved-
A vase dripping away
Holding time's finger

Rattling his soul
As a broken alms bowl,
Unable to knock open
A deaf world's door
To go out of this life-
Conscious how immense
Is oneself without walls.

A tremendous attempt to redefine blindness, that too with so humane an approach.

We all have come across beggars with their wretched and miserable condition but the way you have portrayed it makes their equation with the world regrettable on the part of the latter. Thanks. Unable to knock open / A deaf world's door Conscious how immense / Is oneself without walls.

To go out of this life- Conscious how immense Is oneself without walls. A surprising sentence that makes sense.Thanks!

Brilliant poem, not only must we help the poor, homeless and unwanted, we must aim to eradicate poverty and homelessness. A brilliant poem, thank you.

a touching and thoughtful work, in every city there are beggars and the world is deaf to their cries. Thank you for remembering those lost.
