Somewhere I hear a baby cry
Sick and just waiting to die
Mommy's left her all alone
All hope of surviving gone
Tears of a precious baby girl
In a forgotten corner of the world


A man sits on a cold hard floor
No one knocks on his front door
No ringing of the telephone
All trace of his family gone
His life and endless,useless whirl
In a forgotten corner of the world


Children starving in the street
Mothers crying in defeat
People turning off their TV
Blocking out what they don't want to see
Haunted eyes with uncombed curls
In a forgotten corner of the world

Unfortunately these forgotten corners of the world are to be found everywhere - and noone seems to notice.

Linda, seems like we turn our heads away to what we know is wrong and inhumane so we won't have to be aware of it. Very insightful poem. Your friend Bill

Reflection by Donna Lagone

Why did Rosie on her death bed asked me to promise to always keep her silver mirror in the family. What silver mirror and why?..
