Just imagine being homeless at Christmas. Unfortunately Christmas for many underlines the desperate and dire situation they find themselves in. I like to think this season could be about hope and an extraordinary city full of caring people...
Eyes worn and hopeless
Haunting flecks of puzzlement.
Do not gaze on me superior
Your world too may wither.
This wilderness of hunger
Pain and freezing present.
Shadowed past and deadened embers
This homeless menaced paradise.
Forgotten loves and doomed ideals
Hang bitterly in my mind.
So easily I arrived here
This saddened castle of frugal honor.
