While I walked

Faith looked at me today

Said “sorry buddy I can’t stay”

“What I stand for has become hazy”

“Since this world became so crazy”


I saw hope heading out of town

Asked him why he wore a frown

He told me his reason for the face

“I no longer seem to have a place”


Sat next to human nature on a train

Looked like she was in lots of pain

I enquired if she was going or coming

“I don’t really care as long as I am running”


Walked past love sitting all alone

She looked like she was far from home

Asked her if she had a place to stay

But she just got up and walked away


I sensed greed in shadows lurking

I knew that he was busy working

Whispering into good men’s ears

Trying to buy them out their fears


And last of all I bumped into despair

When I found no one was there…

Very nice :-) I often wondered where the virtues and lights had gotten to, but then I’m sure they left long ago, if they were ever there at all. Great work!
Congratulations on winning a featured.
