Life Statements

“Leave me alone”
Said the man with empty hands
“I have given enough,
But no-one understands”
“Call me tomorrow”
Said the man who won’t listen
Staring into the allure
Of gold coins as they glisten
“We should have lunch”
Said the very best friend
But they left it at that
And days rattled to an end
“Look into the mirror”
Said the man you want to be
Wherever did he go?
He walked past but you didn’t see

Very poignant poem. I like how the last stanza brings it home.
