Tears in My Eyes

another day
in the school of hard knocks
tears in my eyes

waning moon…
spirits in the ‘hood

years of solitude -
i walk along the fatal shore
with tender foot

the silent cry
for help unheard,,,
famished night

on the wings of hunger
the lost boy
dreams of home

i sit like
an orphan betrayed
reading haiku

cloudy sky lingers
i touch
the broken hearts
