Street


another homeless person just died
another homeless person died
and not one person cried
not one person cried

cause its just another
homeless person that died
not people like you and me
like you and me

someone’s dying in the gutter
somewhere
dying in the gutter somewhere
with nothing but their soul laid bare
nothin but their soul laid bare

a homeless chile is eating from a
garbage can
eating from a garbage can
and not one person sees
not one person sees

an old woman fell on the street
cause she’d had nothin to eat
nothin to eat
an old woman fell on the street

tonight i looked in the mirror and cried
for i saw my own soul had died
my soul had died

  1. Many years ago I was homeless for a while , I was extremely lucky , I got taken home by a couple of gay guys , I had no idea when I went with them that they were a “couple” and had reached the point where I would do whatever it took to have a bed for the night , luckily for me all I was subjected to was the kindness of stranger’s . Admittedly being a female of tender years at the time stood me in good stead , but some people do care .
