slum suvivor

in my tepory shelter
out in the cold 
no one knows what 
each knight will unfoled, 
you get so hungry 
you can allmost hear your stomache cry
when its below zero 
your to scared to sleep 
incase you die,
you colud maybe find some dry newspappers
to put inside your clothes to try to keep you warm    
but even  then you still might not make it through until dawn 
when you need help the most your not sure if enyone 
will come 
its not life living in a slum.

by james chtistian please surport the homelss and those living in slum's or 
tempare shelters. this year and next  i did it for 1 night it was hard  enough but
a life time in a slum ' is tough.

    James, the plight of the homeless tears my heart. You have described their struggles very well. Bless you, Carolyn
