the castaways

the castaways  walk alone.
down the many allies, roads.
looking for someone to take,
them in, for a meal, for rest.

for a kind hand to hold them.
to heal their wounds,their
scared,broken,straved bodies.
to be loved,cared for,a home.

thrown out by irresponsible humans.
who thought they were cute once.
kicked to the curb to fend alone.
their cries go unnoticed by so many.

such devastation, they endure because
of the ignorance of mankind.
the castaways walk alone.
down the many roads and allies.

    Brilliant writing, Rhonda! It's a terrible situation for many people, without any hope. What can we do? Ruben.

    An excellent poem Rhonda. Yes, the ignorance of mankind at it's worse. That cute little one who grows up and walks that sad road alone. This tugs at the heartstrings that we have so many on the streets with no where to call home. God Bless Phyl
