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

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.

This is a very dark piece. Hopelessness, poor state of life, and all in this sort are the images reading this work brings upon one's thought. I love poems of this kind, and this is a good one.
