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
