The poem(s) are below...



the night air is cold but what else is new
hopeless men gather much more than a few
a long line is formed but no words are said
looking to Hell for answers as they hang their heads
what little they possess is taken no regard
every face is tired some are even scarred
scraps are served but to only one’s delight
most forego the pity as they prepare for night
eight somber men share one small room
a stench marinated in collective gloom
some find comfort and roar throughout the dark
others toss and turn hoping sleep finds its mark
as my eyes close their faces are all I can see
am I looking at them or are they looking at me

    These things are truly a mystery...Why people must suffer so unnecessary...While others live lavishly... A conscious poem...All the best
