My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

“unwanted”

 

where do they go

the dregs

the loveless

undesirables

when hopeless truth

is all they know

when they live at the bottom of a glass

a ditch

or the desolate grave of their own despair

forgotten

alone

unseen

unknown

where do they go…

the unwanted

to find peace

where do we go

    This is a question unanswered by most.

  2. Indeed a fine question to answer…such despair seems to result in some of the crime we see in society.

  3. This is just so sad and evoked deep feelings within Tracy! Alone in the stillness of eternal truth…or is it? oxo

  4. Wow, this is so powerful, Tracy. I’m glad to see you turn your talents to a bit of social commentary. You do it so effectively, and make us all pause and reflect for a moment. I’m betting that none of your readers will walk past the next invisible, and not see.

  5. Very nice Tracy…the ending really brings it all home…we all experience despair at some point in our life…and even if we are physically destitute we can be emotionally….well done…bkm
