HOMELESS

trudging through muddy waters
legs tired and worn
wondering why life is so hard
wondering why he was born
looking for answers
but his search went no where
seems like life has left him behind
with no one to care
homeless like so many others
wanting warmth and stability
life was so easy once
now he’s on his knees
begging for a dollar
for a little something to eat
people shun and laugh at him
worn and tattered shoes on his feet
soup kitchens now closed
no where to get a meal
why did this happen to him
why did he get a raw deal
lying in an alley
disheveled and afraid
his time is almost over
music no longer played

Artist's Description

There are so many homeless in the United States
and throughout the world…their lives have become
hopeless … their plight is a sad one. Please don’t
shun them … if you can … please help them …

I was extremely touched yesterday by H M
Bascom’s(H M Bascom) amazing video and Jay’s awesome
voice. After watching and listening, I wrote this
poem.
