The Forgotten Souls (Left To Die On The Streets Alone)

In a dream like world
in a dream like state
all that they have
is their skin and their bones

No lights no stars
no sound no sight
just blackened storms
in a turmoiled mind

These are the forgotten souls
left to die on the streets alone

    Beautiful and touching poem indeed. It's very true such people are there everywhere. Fantastic write. Thank you.

    This seems to acclaim the delusions of life where everybody oscillates between earth planet and nether world. And God also doesn't come to raise our souls. Well write Dave. Nice one...

    You speak powerfully to us all, and for those, so many who do seem forgotten; let us hope, and do our part to help them feel not forgotten. Great words Dave.

  • Tirupathi Chandrupatla (12/18/2013 10:20:00 AM)

    Poignant lines presenting reality. Such people are found in all parts of the world. Great write. Thank you.

    A great poem I wrote on called 'His Shoes' with a similar theme. Hope that there is some shelter this Christmas for the forgotten souls. I shall try and do my bit. Thanks for sharing BB: O)
