Genius and Beauty, Beyond the Homelessness

All you saw was rags,

All you heard was hunger,

All you said was "sorry",

All you thought was "homeless".

All I could do was wait,

wait to find someone else beyond that,

and learn to love them,

Like I had been told.

 

All you saw was rags, 

All you heard was hunger,

All you said was "sorry",

All you thought was "homeless,

All I could do was ignore,

and admire at what I had found beyond that.

Admire this hidden beauty,

Like I had been told.

 

You still see rags,

You still hear the hunger,

You always say "sorry",

And still think "homeless",

All I'm doing now is working,

This genius I had found,

Is who I am,

Looking beyond everything.
