A New Beginning

He sits,

lingers,

paces,

runs,

and begs.

 

He is starved,

parched,

alone,

and weary.

 

He takes a train,

far far away,

from chaos,

and clutter,

that his future life brought.

 

A new beginning,

a bottle released,

left to scavenge,

along with the past life,

that he so wished to alter.

 

A new beginning,

for a man lost in the wind.

 

A bottle released,

from his cold and pruned hand.
