What Poetic Techniques did I used
Every day is like a moonless night
My eye sparkle but only with tears
Coats filled with clinking coins and rustling notes
I lay my palm open
I sit looking at the bakery across the road
I hear the bread singing for me
Hoping for a crumb each day
But I’m still skin and bone
I sleep on a bed of stones
I breathe in the smoke of despair
The night reflects my shame and pain
I am numb to the bone
And chilled to the stone
I sit still looking at the shimmering stars
For a glimpse of hope.
As I know tomorrow will be another fight for survival
But I keep asking myself
What have I done wrong to deserve this?
