Life Of A Beggar

Living life on the crutches of poverty

In a world without balance

The life of a beggar, a pitiful one

Waiting to die from a time gone by

Bounded by the hunger tearing his heart

He’s a platter for the homeless beasts

Night closes in on him carelessly

By day his wrinkles smile on a chapel floor

The rotten smell clung on him like dead meat

Whining at life, vomiting bitterness

Promises of a hopeless future

Clung on his rugged wool covering

One day in the life of a beggar

When the sky will open

And release the gifts of life

Redeeming the locust eaten years

  1. Powerful writing, Eddaz. Poverty is unfathomable suffering in a world so rich with resources. As the saying goes, “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.” Sad state of affairs. 😦
