Homeless in Dublin
Desolate in O Connell street,
Deepening darkness in Ballybough,
damp and dirty in Coolock,
an overall threatening atmosphere,
loveless, chilly and heartless.
The only light seems to be a glare
from fast food joints.
My old friend, Paul Mc says:
“THAT GIRL SINĒAD RADIATES BEAUTY”.
Yes, Courage is beautiful.
It puts hope back
where it is lost
like reconciling with a good friend
who you have hurt.
Hope is beautiful too
