POCKET CHANGE ( Goddess's Picture Challenge )

Poetry By: angellynn

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

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
