Beacon Of Hope - Poem by Carolyn Sears

Looking for a beacon of
Hope
From a simple stranger

Walking down a street in
A strange country

Never been there before

Poverty-stricken seem know
End..
Walking around on the street
Not knowing

Where to turn, mind is lost
Seeking hope..

Maybe a little hope

Coming from the strangers

Walking on this strange street

Never been there before

But faces shown age of depression
Of life

Lines of time

Shown worn and weary, know
Light,

Know hope

One faint tear

Pains of hunger

With sullen bellies

Is their know end in sight in

Strange man land..

Looking for a beacon of hope

Maybe a little light..
