Sonnet of Loneliness

Walking between people and watching around
the man on the corner with his shopping cart
with all his belongings, strolling downtown
asking for coins, rubbish bins knowing by heart

a woman on the bench of the village square
old an in a worn out coat, pigeons feeding
a young man besotted, freaked out and so scared                              
the bullied little girl, alone and weeping

loneliness doesn’t look for gender or age
so how has it happened and who is  to blame
for some on their life’s journey this is a stage

for others they seek it like a moth his flame
or a dying star and just going backstage
in a hard world that has forgotten their name.
