In this city

30 Aug

From a bus through the city,
I saw its poverty.
From the depths of my heart,
A line, “So sad!”
A moment of thought, “Better try to
Craft a good Haiku.”
Then to let the sight, the thought, the emotion
Fade into oblivion.
For the bus has to move on, and so do I,
To my future, which I wait to see.
To ignore and to forget, I am used to.
What do you say ? Aren’t you ?


Sharing with Thursday Poets’ Rally Week 50!

    Unfortunately all too often this is a sad truth

    If the difference between rich and poor is too big, there is something not right! Politics should be about improving their lives, and pay for it by taxes for the rich. (As an answer to your question. I am glad you took this issue as theme. ) Very good poem on social unfairness!

    Your lines have an element of truth that is is fast fading from the world. Hold on to it; it is worth every bit!
