Workshop # 3
He sat by himself, alone...
On the highest building,
In the largest city,
In the seat of the world.
He was unnoticed by those
that walked beneath him,
No one paid attention to the lone man,
Tired and sleepy,
Huddled in a corner of a building long forgotten.
No people remembered his name,
His family long gone,
the money gambled for drugs...
A tin can of half dead fish,
A cracked iron bowl,
These were things
that the world had thought
never existed in this current day and age...
Cupped in his hand were his most prized possessions,
They were the only things that kept him alive...
A match, unused, and a match, smoldering in silence.
And then they were gone.
The man cried softly, once again feeling the bitter cold
From the wind that blew harshly over the building's roof,
Screeching and moaning in agony.
He was not the only one who felt pain,
Nor died on that day.
