Tag Archives: judgement


I watch, seeing you sitting there

looking so saddened and somber.

Unkept beard, thinning grey hair

couldn’t appear any more calmer.

Couldn’t help myself but to think

“what’s wrong in that head?”

Thinking, “could I buy you a drink?”

“Quite possibly a loaf of bread?”

Children walk on the other side

as they cautiously, yet hastily skip by.

While managing your dignity and pride

you don’t waste life wondering why.

Though, I now wish that my realization

of inaccuracy had come much sooner…

because after all this time,

I’ve come to find… were just waiting for an Uber.
