MISCONCEPTION


                        MISCONCEPTION


Had to lie.
When asked,
 Said I worked at McDonalds
Fellow students 
Would never understand…
 …Care.
An art student
Living under the shade of the Empire State
Steps away 5th Avenue
Without a job?
Turned me into a snob from abroad
In their eyes.
Worst yet
I was an ambassador’s son,
What a Bum!
He feels no pain
Has nothing to gain
Homeless people have more to say!
Never felt like explaining
Lying was much easier,
I was then one of them.
Should have told them 
About my homeless heart.
