The Beggar Man

He wanders so, here and there

Walking circles in the air

No direction in this path

He simply views the aftermath

And looks back over many years

Which gave him all those countless fears

And brought him now to when he stands

To see the void which he commands

 

The sorry shell which he’s become

Contains an endless vacuum

Drawing out his heart and soul

To leave him with a pointless goal

A goal he set in childhood days

“Be Lord of all” which he surveys

But tragedies now leave him bare

Walking circles in the air

This is so sad as it reflects the feelings of someone whose dreams have been shattered and who feels they have no purpose in life...

'The sorry shell which he’s become

Contains an endless vacuum

Drawing out his heart and soul'


Very powerful and profound...
