© JS (CN) 2011I try to picture him
Walking the city streets,
Vulnerable to evils of the alleys
And forces of mother nature.

What is he doing today?
Is he hungry?
Is he cold?
Is he lonely?

Do people think of him
As just another bum
Wandering aimlessly
In a concrete maze?
Do they even see him?

They don’t know his story
They don’t know that his addictions
Put him on this path.

He has a mental issue
The world does not perceive,
The world cannot conceive.

He smoked but never felt the fire.
He drank but still was thirsty.
He gambled and he lost.

Every homeless soul
Is a soul from somewhere.
Try to picture him.
