Old man's strife!



I glance through my window
I see an old man
Walking across the lane
Coins juggling in his can

With every coin dropped
His eyes lit up
He wishes nothing great
Just a rice cup

I see him strain
Walking weak and thin
A kaput rough stick
His kith and kin

I caught his wise poignant eyes
Telling a tale of his tattered life
Once a young man’s misfortunes
Now an old mans strife

I loved how you used alliteration throughout the poem, special mention:
1) Telling a tale of his tattered life
2)A kaput rough stick
His kith and kin
