Syllable count: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, etc. PLUS a philosophical statement. Any combination of a prime number syllable count may be used per line, to avoid mirror images as this will detract from the freestyle feel. The line breaks serve as punctuation and no caps are used unless it is called for.

invisible in plain sight humanity's throwaways live on the street begging a living how absurd that sounds in a city of plenty we are human beings; we're supposed to care yet we never have enough stuff to share it's time for us to accept we are our brother's keeper (Suzette Prime) 8/14/2018

Again "Amen" to your expressed truth and admonition. God bless you. (May I please "remind" you of Connie's comment as to the typo in your title. "It should read 'Supposed' as spelled in the sixth line.)

"But for the grace of God there go I" comes to mind when I see a homeless person. Your poem solidifies that message with your words and caring heart Emile. I am so excited you are working on another book. Let us know when it is published. You do have a typo in your title. It should read 'Supposed' in your sixth line too.xxoo
