Poem: All Around Me

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

By Leonard Perry

All around me,
I see plenty.
Plenty of humans,
But no humanity.
Plenty of lovers,
But not much love.
Plenty of people are keeping time,
Yet nobody’s making any.
I see eyes all around me
Yet they lack life –
Their bodies are alive…
but their souls aren’t living.
