He Has Dignity - Poem by Emma Adel

I saw him waking
I heard his voice
I felt his pain.
He is neither beggar nor cadger,
He has dignity
He’s just calling for help,
Can’t see how to live anymore.

Selling wipers,
he took it as a way to live,
Walking a long distance.
Doesn’t know where to start
Or even where he will end up,
All he knows is
When the sun comes up
and a new day has come
He has to start his work.

Walking, walking, and walking
Under the heat of sun in summer
Under the heavy rain in winter
But although the sun goes down
He can’t sleep!
He still doesn’t eat,
So he continuous his awful journey,
Can’t stop
Cos he’s still hungry.

In the darkness he has to walk
His feet can’t move anymore
His heart full of fear
He has to walk again
Till he falls asleep without
Knowing where is he,
Hungry all the time.

Anyway next day he has to walk again
Praying for something to eat
We may be think that he doesn’t have anything
But that’s too wrong
He has something
Most people don’t have

He Has Dignity
