Life on the streets

Life on the streets
 Written 9-2-07
It's a cold bitter night 
With nothing but garbage to eat 
Wrapped in a shredded blanket
 A little stuffed animal to comfort 
Worrying that death approaches around the corner 
Thinking night will never end
 Now huddled in a warm corner 
Closing the eyes to dream of wealth 
Shadows fall nearby 
Being beaten and tortured
 No one near to help 
Covered in bruises and stained with blood
 Tears down the cheeks 
Crying to fall asleep 
Morning beginning a suffering day 
Kneeling on the ground begging for money
 Just one bite of real food
 Being stared at and called names 
Smelling from a lack of hygiene
 Weakness in the body 
Nothing but skin and bones 
Longing for a piece of food 
Hiding in a dark corner 
Laying on the ground Closing the eyes 
Never seeing the light again
