My take on a subject close to my heart

Shaken conscience on a canvas,

A canvas of humanity in the morass,

As if life halt suddenly in a nice roll,

Incidents erase ambition or goal,

Uncertain future hopes in a haze,

Incredible spirits change in the craze,

Destitute, migrant, refugee looks, and addicted,

A paper boat in swirl pool in hook,

A shelter from open skies harsh,

Life aspires to grow, birds in marsh,

The accident is sudden, lucky saves life,

Limbs broke, repairs surgeon’s knife,

Kid squeeze out old parent stroll to the road,

Homeless, sick, hungry life erodes,

Compassion is alive in mind inroads,

Hopeless teary lives in abandon sail,

Thrives is pain life in summer or hail,

Rehab harbors old in exile well.
