Street child by DALLAS01
The human condition writing prompt entry

Street child-
To fill the vacancy
your hollow, hazel gaze;
barren stretch of sadness,
where unoccupied
has become
an instant messenger,
unable to locate a server
to deliver your plea
to a world
so preoccupied
that it turns its head
in passing-
as you
pander your pain;
subtle supplication.

Writing Prompt
Write a poem on any aspect of the human condition. All forms welcome, your choice.
No humor. One piece of artwork chosen from FanArtReview. No music or sound effects.

Author Notes
