Lonely & sad is how he looks

There is always a story

behind an artwork


A story he doesn’t say much about

A story about loss and grief


It feels like he doesn’t belong in the area

because all the words around him are

about him


The man looks sad

words are offending him


He’s a legend and a piece of art within


Feels all alone and

left out

like the words are teasing him


I saw the name of the street and the bad word.


A man, sad because of the words heard


The mean boss is standing, holding a

stick and shouting


The boy feels

confused because of all the words, the

                        chaos around him
