Scott’s Prayer

I sit upon the street
My needs upon display
People pass me by
Without a word to say

It’s like I don’t exist
Discomfort in their face
Easy to dismiss
Encounter to embrace

Reinforcing wounds
Salt upon the scars
Hoping for a brother
Too break down the bars

They don’t want to support
Abuse of drugs or drink
But would they let me share
The feelings that I think

My need is to be noticed
To have somebody pause
Show that I have value
Not subject of their cause

To let me share my dreams
Tell about my day
Say where I come from
To listen to what I say

I long for the connection
A bond to world beyond
A silent prayer is lifted
Would you please respond?
