Cast-Aways


Homeless woman
Left sitting,

Used, unwanted,

Rejected,

Abandoned.

Sitting like an old drink cup,

No one needs or notices 

Shadorma

(This poem was inspired as I was cleaning out the inside of my car. My grand-children often leave their empty soda cups behind after we have had lunch at a fast food restaurant.  Upon seeing these empty, used, un-wanted cups my mind thought of the great homeless problem the nearby city of Portland, OR is facing.  I hope this poem brings awareness to the ever growing problem of homelessness in Portland, OR. and that the link to the news story regarding the problem will be read by those who might be able to help in providing a solution some way.)
