I sat. I stretched and opened my dirty hands. I listened to the sounds of the crowd that passed by. I stared at their feet. Hoping I will find a friend who will drop a coin into my palm.

Poverty is rampant. It is really sad to see them alone in a corner.

@Xiasses Your poem was short but it feels like that is what beggars really feel.

Really enjoyed your poem. I have also written some poetry, kind of offbeat like this, and my family and friends have liked it. Sometimes poetry sums up what can otherwise be lost in translation. Keep up the good work!

I never give coins to beggars, I give enough for them to buy food. not because I am richer, but because I am grateful, God still gives me the opportunity to eat on time even in shortcomings
