NaPoWriMo ~ Day 13 ~ I Went for a Walk and…~

Your prompt for today is simply to take a walk. Make notes — mental or otherwise — on what you see on your walk, and incorporate these notes into your poem. A bit more serene and observational than yesterday, and hopefully a nice, calming poem to begin your weekend with.

Happy writing!

I Went for a Walk

I went for a walk to nowhere have I been
my eyes are painful at what they have seen

have stepped on trash rough paper and stones
have bent down to peer at what was real bones’

stray cats dogs cows and goats have winked
as I wandered in many a strange company

Walking to a book center was heavy on the feet

if school were good I would’ve stayed on the beat

question me not please for I have no answers
have no words for humans living as campers

fumbling empty tins bags bottles and cans
and live without food water, pots and pans
kids roam hair disheveled scratching away
happy hungry hopeful ignorantly at play
what people are these are they refugees ?

do they need passports and passes please

I want to be at ease
there is more than eye can see, the ears

can hear, figures grow the world thickens

dirty more than a place of Charles Dickens

question me not for what more I see

people hit shot killed a girls bleeding body

am I awake is this real I ask myself

why can’t I reach The Book on The Shelf?
