As i step into this morning madness
I catch a glimpse of the cold iindifference,
The ultimate sadness
The substitute phoney smiles
Trying to hide in the erosion of  the chaotic miles
Still i reach out
Just one warm heart 
Will hope survive another day?
Will it pass my way
Or stray
Lost  in the concrete maze
With all those trapped in the frozen gaze
Still i reach out
Can just one warm heart be found
Before it all comes crashing  down
They keep missing the signs
Ignoring  time to tow the line
Conforming to all that our society defines,
Until you have yours
And i have mine
Still i reach out
Amidst all my doubts
That there is one warm heart 
That will not flee
And will turn about
And finally see 
The real me.

    Beautiful poem Carl - full of meaning. Without hope tomorrow dies, yet life is too wonderful to live in 'phoney' existence. Nicely done! soupmail.

    Keep looking! The Grateful Dead sang "Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart - you just gotta poke around). You can find some good people in the metropolis. Stimulating poetry here! Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish
