Troubled Man

He walks along the street

looking preoccupied,

the thoughts running through

his head have him terrified.

This troubled man

who once had it all

now he’s just waiting

for death to call.

No one takes much notice

of him anymore

but if they see him coming,

they rush inside

and close their door,

afraid that he will

come begging for money,

while their children throw stones

at him and think it’s funny.

This troubled man

whose mind has gone astray

is now left on his own

to try and find his way.
