Derelict - Poem by Simon Collins

From a distance
I see him bent stubbornly
Mad against the day
In resentful motion his
Weary time stained aura
Keeping up like a reluctant shadow
Wanting to rest yet
Stepping over the waiting earth
Shuffling
To a less important destination
Called by softer voices now
Compassionate
Yet unheard
Through echo's
Of his pain
