Broken

The snow is blowing sideways
beneath the street light’s glow,
as I gazed out through the window
to the avenue below.

There’s a druggie and a homeless man
with nothing left to eat,
two ragged individuals
both broken from defeat.

People pass them on the street
and smile if they dare,
most will look the other way
to avoid their empty stare.

Broken dreams and shattered hearts
are out there everywhere,
some of us can feel the pain
but most don’t even care.

Some will face the worst in life,
heavy burdens, they will bear
while others find their fortunes
life isn’t always fair.

Now, I gaze down at those two,
so hungry in the cold
and realise their tale is
another story growing old.
