I write the below poem NOT out
of self pity but how the extremities of life
The only person is me to change
my life with tenacity and positivity.
(an acrostic poem )
Longing for a hug.
Only that is not an option.
Never seeing my family,
Everyday I feel rejection.
Listening to the happy laughter
In the neighbourhood.
No one bothers to check on me,
Except the pigeons....is that good?
Sounds of silence is my life,
Since I've lost much and everyone.
I'm trying hard to cope alone,
Secretly yearning for some fun.
