OF HARD LIVING PEOPLE~by RJ Beaumont


 

 

OF HARD LIVING PEOPLE
~

Image may contain: 1 person

Attend bona fide stories
Of hard living people
Not frozen, not chozen
Nor amused under steeple

The trodden ones down
No food on the plate
Eyes hard boiled
That don’t resonate

Farther from joy
With a mindful sigh
Of better things resolved
And why couldn’t I?

Fashioned in, aging out
No, no more fear
Faith gone awry
Untaken by cheer

A troubled cadence
A blameless rope
Deducing the darkness
Barely a flicker of hope

Words by RJ Beaumont
New Year’s Eve 2017
