Richard Schnap- A Poem


Someday they will build monuments
For those who begged on corners
And dedicate a holiday
To the ones who failed at love
And award gold-plated prizes
In honor of broken dreamers
And hold a moment of silence
For the souls who died alone

And when that day arises
When the unsung are remembered
Who straggled at the bitter end
Of life’s mad marathon
I hope that from the gardens
Of the heaven they were promised
They will hear the world applauding
Just because they were alive
