A Word?

Im wraped up tight in paper and rags
all my wordly possesions in a green garbage bag
My hairs streaked with grease sticking close to my face
i feel so alone in this cold cramped up space
they look down at me with disgust in their eyes
yet they still ignore me and my silent cries
all i want is a word for a minute or two
can i borrow that word?
may i speak to you?

Keep working -- this piece has some great potential. i especially love the line about worldly posessions in a green garbage bag. I can picture it so well!! Can you take a look at some of my work, please? TeenInk.com/raw/Poetry/article/100136/Caged-Birds/
