Poem: Despair Is

Despair is

not having enough


to pay the bills.

Fear of illness

and no money for


It’s the feeling

that your future is bleak

while others dismiss you as weak.

Politicians speak

about the people.

Some disparage

while others try to help.

The misguided views

and division among

those in power

lead to despair

in the most vulnerable.

Erasing it

would be a win

for mankind

leading to a

better state of mind.
