homeless and with words

 

NOT EVERYBODY HAS GONE TO COLLEGE OR ARE INTELLECTS

YET WORDS THEY’VE LEARNED THEY TEND TO FORGET

SO I WRITE PLAIN SIMPLE POETRY

JUST SO THRU MY EYES LIFE THEY CAN SEE

WE ALL SEE LIFE IN A DIFFERENT WAY

WHAT IS RIGHT ! WHO IS TO SAY !

I HAVE MET HOMELESS PROFFESIONALS OF EVERY KIND

WHO SAY THEY’RE HOMELESS , BECAUSE LIFE IS BLIND

IT DOES’NT MATTER YOUR PROFFESION , AGE , OR GENDER

TO ALCOHOL AND DRUGS YOU DID SURRENDER.

WE VERY RARELY GET LIFE ON A SILVER PLATTER

WE WORK HARD FOR THINGS THAT MATTER/

RESPONSIBILITIES DON’T GO AWAY , BECAUSE

YOU GET HIGH AND WANT TO PLAY.

THERE ARE SO MANY WORDS THAT I CAN USE

THE SIMPLE ONES ARE THE ONES I CHOOSE.

YET WORDS USED THE PROPER WAY

CAN TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND DSY TO DAY.

IT IS CALLED SPEECH , SOMETHING THAT A LITTLE

EDUCATION CAN TEACH.

LISTEN TO WORDS AND HOW THEY’RE USED

TRY THEM IF YOU CHOOSE.

THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON I EVER MET

WAS A SIXTH GRADE DROPOUT WHO SELF TAUGHT

HIMSELF BY WATCHING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

ON TELEVISION AND HOLD CONVERSATIONS WITH ME

ABOUT MONEY , POLITICS AND HISTORY.

HE WAS STILL RUNNING HIS FATHERS GROCERY STORE

ND HELPING THE HOMEKESS ON THE STREETS

GIVING THEM FOOD AND CLOTHING AND WARM SOCKS FOR THEIR FEET.

YET THE BIGGEST GIFT HE HAS GIVEN THE HOMELESS

IS THE WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT/
