Big Issue…

 

Big Issue

I was striding out
quite purposefully
I had to make it to the office you see,
I looked straight ahead
and there I saw
a
Big Issue seller and what was more
so many people
ignored where he stood,
he might have well been a block of wood
for all the notice
that they took
not even sparing him a second look.
So I stopped still
chatted a little while
handed the money over with a smile.
It doesn’t take much
to lift someone’s day
      “There but for the grace of God” is what I say.

  3. A great poem Pen reminding us to take a look around us and actually ‘SEE’ others…and try to help them where we can.

    Like you say in your poem “It doesn’t take much to lift someone’s day “There but for the grace of God” is what I say. ”

  5. Lovely poem! I often see such people, and I always notice how they are ignored. They must feel so lost sometimes. You’re right, it doesn’t take much to lift someone’s day 🙂
