Tale Weaver – #280 – Tickets – June 18th.

Michael is the host of Tale Weaver



The ticket stub lay on the road, forgotten

It blew with the air here and there

The journey that it represented was over

Another day had gone and the night was looming

Tomorrow she would buy another ticket

To ride the metro all day long

No destination was planned just the ride was the aim

What could a homeless person do when there wasn’t

A place to live, a place to eat or sleep even

Here at least she could sit, get protected from elements

The hot days, cold nights, rain-drenched streets

She wasn’t alone, there were many of them

Seeking some refuge from the circumstances that

Life had pushed them into unwillingly, unprepared

( During my stay in Seattle, I find it heartbreaking to see so many homeless people wandering the streets, riding the buses all day long, and sleeping in the streets. And this is one of the prosperous cities of the USA!)

The Prompt;

This week write your response to the word ‘Tickets’.

  1. I had a friend who went through homelessness and I did all I could for him, but he was more than 1,200 miles away. Now I just found out another friend is actually in a tent city there in Seattle. It is truly heartbreaking!
