Artist's Description

Can You Spare A Dime
by Jesse Garcia

Although most people can’t give their time,
All we are asking for is can you spare a dime.
To some people a dime is no big deal,
But to the homeless, it can mean our next meal.

Waking up during cold winter mornings or hot summer nights,
We are not wanted where there are bright shining lights.
We are harassed by the police and passers-by,
They know we need help and won’t meet us eye to eye.

Each and everyday we try to survive,
In a land where hunger and diseases thrive.
Most people label us as drunks,
But the reality is most of us live out of our trunks.

Rusted old cars and no where to go,
Although we have worked hard we have nothing to show.
Looking for food and no place to stay,
Most people don’t care if we faded away.

You treat us like criminals, yet we didn’t commit a crime,
All we are asking is can you spare a dime?

This was a wake up call on my visit to Vietnam.
