Symptom of Society

She is a symptom of society,

that’s getting harder to treat.

Without any opportunities,

she found herself on the streets.

Begging doesn’t pay the rent ,

but it’s the only option today.

Wanting to scream out ‘where’,

when she’s told to go away.

Then plenty other symptoms,

like the guy that beat her up.

Didn’t look before he hit her,

kicked away her empty cup.

If only it would end today,

if society could finally see.

 Stopping by her as they pass,

with love on hearing her plea.
