today's begging is finished; at the crossroads
i wander by the side of hachiman shrine
talking with some children.
last year, a foolish monk;
this year, no change!

Beautiful poem. We all need that at times: : : someone to hold us so we can cry, heal the pain, and feel needed and accepted for who we are. You have expressed the raw emotion and sorrow very well here. So sorry for your pain.
