I turned away a hand that needed help...

I turned away a hand that needed help...

Seeking a gesture of kindness,
Requited by a head looking away
Tilting into another direction;
Opposing were hope was looking~
No hope here:
Replaced by a shadow of its former self

A vessel filled with hopelessness, emptied hope...
That which his soul craves and hungers

The hand I turned away...
Needed help...

  1. A stroll in the avenues and streets of Bulawayo are incomplete without an interaction with a child of the street, the less privileged, and the needy.

    Different circumstances bring this less privileged group of the community. Yet each and every day, we simply ignore and move along with our business, as if we never glanced at them.

    In this piece, I relieved this daily scenario, thinking about how ignoring them could possibly have an impact on their hope.
