Candy Store Window

The loneliest place
in the world
is outside,
looking in,
like a child
pressing his nose
to the window
of a candy store,
wishing
to have it all,
and, finally,
having nothing.

'No one cries harder for peace/ Than a warrior who has lost the will to fight...' no truer words were ever said about the subject matter of this poem.
