Unseen Bystander

Cold nights, Semi-warm days

Sitting here for what seems like light years


Watching dozens and dozens just pass by

Like I’m invisible or just don’t exist


But why? Why do they proceed on?

Is because I'm not as fortunate as them or is it something more?


I don't ask for much

Just spare change that is all


But yet they still pass by

What do they think I will use it for


Do they think I'll use it for something bad?

Something good? Something evil?


All I want is to get rid of this hunger

Get rid of this chill


Have something warm to keep my heart filled

Something to keep me satisfied


But no, no one can see

The pain that is hidden so deep
