Wellington's Road


I stand on the corner,
Looking for recognition,
Do I exist?
Can you see me?

Your cars see me,
Blazing neon lights,
Piercing my soul,
Lighting my misfortune.

Oh...to be here,
Cold and bare,
Wearing only a forgotten shame,
Where is my life?

I just need a "hello,"
A "Hi," "Can I help?"
Let me know, please,
Do you see me?

I was somebody too,
I have a name,
I had a place,
I am somebody.

You see a shadow,
You hear an echo,
You pass by,
I wonder why.
