huddled on a branch
of the frozen willow
outside my window shudders
one small sparrow
left in winters clutches.
God keeps His eye on him.
courage of a lion,
fierce determination it takes
to survive in maine a winter
that kills quicker than a mortal sin.
under the bridge just built
for so many million dollars wasted
lives the remnant of todays
vagabonds shivering through
decembers snow and bleakness.
a variety of disabilities banded
in a union of innocent indifference
unable to handle life
in all its varied consequences.
but there resides the rub it seems
for we the living glorified in giving
are unable to attend the needs
of the most vulnerable and humblest.
turn our backs upon the alcoholic
and avoid the ones in schizophrenias grasp,
cast blind indifference to those who hold
a different dream if but in their weakness.
Christ denied once again
in the meak and weakest.

How true, how sadly true. Excellent poem with some hard hitting points. "Whatsoever you do unto the least of these, you have done unto Me". We should all take His words to heart and then aim to live by them. Welcome to Passions, Diana!

A look upon truth with this one.....a true reflection   Well done

 There are two kinds of pedestrians...the quick and the dead. Drive it like you stole it.

Very interesting piece.  Well written I feel.
I have a brother that lives this life, a Vietnam casualty I'm afraid.
Nice work.
