Alone

Attacked
Assaulted
Accosted

He stumbles
Begins to fall
Clutches
The metal railing
In hopes
Of survival

Another punch
Another kick
Another strike

He holds up
His hands
In surrender
Pleading
Begging
For his life

Nonetheless
They continue
Until blood
Cakes his skin
Until his bones
Are shattered
Until his breath
Is gone
Until his corpse
Is left behind

And no one
Heard his screams
And no one
Saw his pain
And no one
Remembers him

He is forgotten
