Poetry By: angellynn
Poetry



She reaches out for pocket change. She reaches for hope. A solution dangles in your pocket.

POCKET CHANGE

Her hand reaches out

her despairs at its peak

Her stomach is empty

shes so very weak

***

Her hand is shaking

the change falls away

As she picks them up

she hears someone say

***

Its not our fault

we're not to blame

Look at her beg

Its really a shame

***

Her husbands disabled

shes sick all the time

Her children are hungry

cant you please spare a dime

***

Pocket change

thats all it takes

You'll never miss it

and what a difference it makes

***

When you reach out to her

do it with heart

Reach deep in your pocket

and give her a new start

***
