feed them

I haven't done poetry in a long time, forgive me.


Food.

I knew I'd be nothing special
in this world.
But human is;
to keep trying.
To the lady at the pharmacey. I..
might have been.
Without name.
She made the sign for food.
So happily she smiled.
to one person,
without name, I may
have been.
She was beyond her years
and I may not be a memory long;
but in my soul,
I know.
And that is all that matters.

-Nellie Tobey
