I am the person,
Hungry and homeless,
Who sits on the corner
As you pass me by.

I am the person,
Cold and disheveled,
In yesterday’s clothes
And you won’t catch my eye.

I am the person,
You don’t give your money,
You think that I’ll waste it;
I’ll drink or get high.

I am the person,
Who looks into bin bags
And eats others’ leftovers
Just to get by.

I am the person,
You think is not like you,
I thought that too,
And that thought makes me cry.

I am a person,
Who wants to feel human,
Not sat here like street scum,
Oh please let me try.

I am a person,
For whom there’s no future.
Just descent into madness,
On these streets I’ll die.

  1. One of life’s sad truths that so many turn their face away from. Thank you for not turning away. xxx
