Who is homeless? You ask me!
Let me explain it easily!
Homeless is in every part of the world
It covers any adult – boy or girl
It can be an individual or a family who has lost everything.
The first thing they lose is hope, and the willpower to even cope.

Then they lose Self Respect, and it gets better yet
They lose faith in their fellow man
Something that they cannot understand.

Now when hope and faith is taken away
Then love does not want to stay
Now that the three things are gone
How can they carry on?

But out of the blue a hand or kind word is said:
“Here come inside warm your feet! Have a little something to eat
Lay down on this bed-just to rest your weary head.
In the back there is a shower, and I’ll lay out a change of clothes
For you to wear.
I don’t have much, but with you I’ll share.”
They now sit on the bed to contemplate
Hope is now beginning to rejuvenate.
Their faith is now starting to creep in
As they ask themselves: “is there a chance that I could win?”
Is there something that I do not see?
When these hardships are thrown at me?

Now that you have seen hope and faith
Maybe love is not too late.
Then with a hug – a show of love is given
Now they see that life is worth living.

Now these three things have been restored
Helplessness will thrive no more.
