THE INVISIBLE MAN
By Jeff Britto
Pain is all I’ve ever known!
It’s been said “You reap what you sow”.
But I’ve never harmed anyone. Not a living soul.
So, I reap the whirlwind,
living the life I was given
with no expectation that somewhere there’s a heaven.
Turning down the avenue with cold rain on my face,
my mind searches back to a better place
as I pray that God will give me his grace.
I’m just a faceless apparition,
taking up space and time,
with its shoes soaking wet
and soles thin as a dime.
