A Beggar’s Plight

By: Kristyn Garza

I travel in this austere,

lonely, place

peering around every corner—

no one.

Alone I wander—


not a trace.

I travel through the streets in the night



I float aimlessly,

finding not a soul,

intoxicated with my own despair.

Dour is the world that which dealt me my role.

Suffocating is the cold-hearted air.


Where people once were,

now have ceased to be.

Where joy once stood,

now stands desolation.





In a dismal plea

Waiting for someone to bring sensation.

Though I wander the streets in dejection

it is not I who has lost perception.
