If you like the feeling of becoming aware after reading a thought provoking poem, this site is for you. If you enjoy reading poetry, this is the site for you. Deborah has selected a few of her poems so that you can Catch the Spirit of another person.
My name is Invisible
An imaginary empty vessel
lying by the wayside
thrown away like rags
tattered, torn, and displaced
Hoping to be greeted by a caring face
You walk by afraid to look at my ghostly appearance
Because I live as a vagrant
And contribute to the jobless filth
On the streets looking for handouts
I sleep close to those like me on cardboard
We cover ourselves for safety
Maybe our existence makes you want to cry
Inaction cares less if the invisible lives or dies
Labor laws prevent me from earning an honest wage
Who hires people my age?
Is my value too small to be seen?
Stop what you are doing
Let’s talk to find solutions
Together we can prevent your children from becoming invisible too
