Help The Homeless

I am the uneducated

I am the unemployed

I am the ill or unwanted

My life seems null and void

I used to ask for help

But none would give an earnest answer

Now I ask myself why I’m treated like cancer

My health and body react to the changing of the seasons

But I’m forced to face the facts and forget about the reasons

On a quest for survival

Down unrelenting streets I roam

Cardboard’s sort of a revival

But a box is not a home

  1. You have a wonderful and imaginative mind When i read them i go blind from all the hatred and joy To the girl and the Boy!! i love your poetry and wish to meet you better yet greet you!

  2. A very interesting poem using free verse, it goes deeply into the mindset of someone that has become quite invisible…its very sad that people have to be made to feel less than…but here’s where knowing we all are of value come into play..
