"Spirit Man" Poem from "A Lover in the Land of Hell" Poetry Book



Spirit man, spirit man

you stand there holding out your hand

Passerby’s don’t understand

This is supposed to be the promised land


Times are bad

down on your luck

In need of change

or just a buck

You’re stuck

in this land of greed

where so many of us

are in need

Bad circumstances

got you on the street

You have no food to eat

no electric or heat

just the hard concrete

and everyone assumes

that you’re a deadbeat


Spirit man, spirit man

digging through that garbage can

digging just as fast as you can

gotta stay strong and be a man


Struggling to survive

people act like you ain’t even alive

Humbled by life

everyday is a plight

Spirit man can’t even sleep at night

Ignored and abused

man of spirit you’ll make it through

I know your heart is true

I can’t speak for the rest

but I believe in you


Spirit man, spirit man

nobody seems to understand

you’re living life the best you can

you have every right to roam this land


But spirit man

the joke’s on us you see

cause you’ve been given the opportunity

to see what we can’t see

-the hypocrisy

Spirit man you’re deeper than most will ever be


Spirit man, spirit man

you stand there holding out your hand

Passerby’s don’t understand

This is supposed to be the promised land


Spirit man

you’ve been dealt a cruel fate

when so many look at you with hate

Living in a world that you can’t trust

but the truth is

Spirit man can be any one of us!
