A Lonely Man

A Lonely Man

A Poem by Ezekiel Silver

Year poem was written: 2013


      I once met a man as I sat upon a bench,

        his spirit seemed scarred yet his heart pure.

      When I sat down he greeted me kindly,

        "Hello young man." is all that he said.


       I greeted him back and continued with a question,

        "Why do you appear so sad and broken?"

      The man smiled in thought before wisely replying,

        "Because I lack brotherhood with my fellow man."


       "If you lack your brotherhood why do you smile?"

        Was my response.

       He only said this before leaving,

        "I smile for I still cling to hope."

I'm just a lonely young man who's recently graduated high school hoping to make a difference in people's lives with my work. Also, Ezekiel Silver is not my real name but one of two pen names I made. more..
