    He sits with his body slouched over
    and his Forehead in his palms
    The poor man looks so tired
    anyone could since that something was wrong
    I watched him as the tears began to fall
    down the backs of his forearms
    Slowly making their way to the floor
    he screams out, “I hate this place,
    I just cant take it here anymore”
    wishing that someone would hear him
    longing For someone to care
    so many people surround him
    but its as if know one notices him there
    Images of her fill his mind
    is this the reason for his depression
    or just Another perpetual hall of
    his seemingly endless mind and
    as he sits down he reflects on
    the awful things he’s done
    starting off with the abortion of his son
    Now he’s thought about this many times
    but it seems to be getting at him more Today
    you see him and his girlfriend have been
    trying to make a baby
    But it seems as if God has given
    and already taking his little boy away
    life these days seems so hard just
    making it from day to day
    so many people love him
    Yet he steadily pushes them all away
    he has become stubbornly lost in
    His own selfish ways trapped in his thoughts
    And engulfed in the same dark and lonely days
    Perhaps he’s upset because he
    held in the tears that day he heard
    that his Father died but that couldn’t be it
    because his father never stood by his side
    Could it be September 11th
    it brought about so much confusion
    Lord knows we all wonder why
    so many innocent people had to die before
    The government realized it was time
    to do something about the terrorists
    On the far east side
    perhaps when he heard the news
    he didn’t Let a tear fall for those who died
    or perhaps he’s just lonely and wants a
    Friend to confide the many thoughts
    that fill his cluttered mind

    Very deep poem poet,
    I will imagine that regret can
    carry a costly price.....nice piece.
