Across the broken sidewalks lay hopeless souls
Those who are broken without any direction
Needles piercing their skin and holes that blister and itch
Into the unknown, they are unleashed
Flying high above a wicked world
Crashing down and left shaking from the cold
Along the filthy streets there are tents and shopping carts
Whatever belongings they have left as a reminder of a forgotten past
Now their brains are clouded and their limbs they can barely move
Ignored by the world around them they are merely ghosts
Drifting along with each passing day.
