Alone

Alone is the homeless man looking at all the goods

Alone is the refugees leaving all they ever knew behind,

Alone is the single pillar
Standing in the rubble of a bombed building

Alone is the Iraqi mother whose children have died
From lack of medical care

Alone is the turban among a thousand baseball caps

Alone Brendan Grant
