The Person On The Corner

The Person On The Corner
 Author Dana Redricks
 August 08, 2014

They look as if she wasn’t there
 She’s somebodies mother, she’s 
 Somebodies child; she was laid off
 She may have made some wrong choices
 A victim of illness, she cries, but no one
 Hears her voice; she is a victim of her
 Her child is hungry, and cold as she 
 Stares into the tears of her mothers eyes.
 Her Mothers heart is hurting, because she
 Can’t supply her child’s needs; while the 
 World is filled with greed, while people
 Struggle to supply their family’s needs.
 The truth is we are all one pay check, one choice,
 And sick day from being that person on
 The corner.
