Their Tomorrow was Yeasteday

Do not pass and look the other way,
pause, and think of something you might do,
their tomorrow finished yesrerday.

Feel compassion as their plight you weigh,
find a helping course you can pursue,
do not pass and look the other way.

Children play at begging not at play, 
mothers weakly smile as they beg too,
their tomorrow finished yesterday.

This day's hunger can be held at bay
all they ask is for a coin or two,
do not pass and look the other way.

Life reduced to one rewcurring day,
colouress, no hope of brightened hue,
their tomorrow finished yesterday.

Passengers or victims of life's fray,
their life exposed clear for all to view,
do not pass and look the other way
their tomorrow finished yesterday.
