The Vagrant.


She sat in a doorway watching life pass her by,
She wore a smile but wanted to cry.
She had lost her child, her husband and home,
Now she was living life all alone.
At first she thought she was able to cope,
Family to visit, offering her hope.

Then the booze kicked in,
And the doors were shut in her face!
She had no other choice but to join
Another part of this human race.

She begged for money, clothes and shoes,
There was nothing else for her to lose.
Dignity was lost, pride what is that?
Now she was used to being spat at.
Her body was the last thing she had to trade.
But she was sullied and no offer was made.

She had not been seen for a week or two,
Then slowly the news filtered through,
She had hanged herself in a sense of shame.
Who do you think was really to blame?

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.

      Dark and mysterious…lolol. Thank you for stopping by and commenting Ellie. I have offered this one to a few charities after it was read aloud from a Las Vegas Radio Station.

    Sometimes we stand on our own door way as a defence, but then it could also block us. Your words are real and human.

  4. Too sad this is part of our world’s reality.
