Ghosts Of Society

Perhaps this poem is an example of my disillusionment with society. Yet there is truth within the words, for some it is an everyday reality.

Ghosts of Society

In a cloud barren sky
The concrete abomination rises
Dominating, isolating,
It shadows the land

Lonely souls live their lives
Day to day
No one notices
There are no kind words

Youths gather in dark alleys
Shouting, laughing, in a menacing furore
They linger to intimidate the passer by

Tenants scurry like frightened rats
Hoping they won’t be seen
Invisible victims of society

They remember another time, another place
A world bestowed by friendly faces
