MY LIFE HAS NO STREET

 

All streets are dead ends,

When you have no friends;

I just want a slice of hope

Or someone to help me cope.

 

I might have fallen away

From whom I was, yesterday;

Not knowing where to begin

Or, even, I can be alive again.

 

Can you see me, at all,

Or have I become so small;

My life has no street,

Just the alley of defeat.

Your words are needed. Too many people don't want to see the poor. In this Obama job bill. How about new low budget housing and create places for people to get help in re-building a life. The old people pay the price. Taxing their income and less benefits. Cut the 1.2 billion on war. Stop giving loan to B.S companies who stole the money and are gone. 530 million dollars lost last week could save a city like Detroit if spend correctly. Thank you for the poem. Many do help the poor. So many that the organizations can't keep up. A excellent poem.

Bless your heart Christina...

"Can you see me, at all,
Or have I become so small;
My life has no street,
Just the alley of defeat."

this is such a sad and unimanagable plight.

I appreciate you bringing attention to this heartsick dilema.

Short but powerful poem. Not anyone of us knows what may befall us in our lifetime. Even if we follow the staight and narrow path we never know what is up ahead. Just make sure it is not something you yourself have created. Maybe some of the homeless would even like to help restore forclosed homes so they might have a place for their family to live or especially help a veterans family. Giving can bring hope to you or them.

The image of the woman reminds me of someone sad and riddled with age. Her story could be different but by the picture alone I have to wonder if she is happy or lonely. Lovely poem by the way. It paints the scene blissfully.
