We sit here and watch as you walk by , wearing you nice suits . Never saying , " Good Morning . We are but shadows ro you .
You hurry to your little cubicles , your hum drum jobs , never once noticing us . Sometimes you pass by , and you feel a little bit guilty .You drop a quarter in front of us . You still don’t get it do you . you probably never will . All that we want and need is a little recognition as still being part of the human race . So walk on by , and pretend we don’t exist . We will be here waiting when you lose your job , family , house and all of your so called friends . We will still be here , when you come here as another lost soul . We will teach you to survive by digging thru dumpsters , garbage cans and showing you how to keep warm on cold nights . We will become like family to you , and you will become almost invisible .
BUT NOT TO US . We will love you like family . No strings attached .
So as POP’s says , " Give a hug , get a hug and shake a hand ". We don’t bite and just want the assurance that " We are not alone ".
Think about these words the next time you see someone homeless . Just a , " Good Morning " is a big step in helping . Now if I made you feel guilty , then I have done the job that God gave me to do.
