homeless

Location

they come in all forms

tall 

short

old 

young

 

they come in all sizes

petite

large

small

skiiny

fat

 

they come in all colors

light

dark

tan

brown

 

you see them all over

a homeless man laying on the floor

a homeless woman with a sign to please spare change

a homeless family with a one year old, half bare footed and a shoe that can barely fit

a homeless young person going around fruit welch snack just to earn a dollar

a homeless couple sleeping on the seats in a train that doesn't require to pay bills

it's amazing when i hear people complain 

but you have a roof over your head, food on the table, and clothes on your body

and you work

you know what

give that same complaint to a homeless person and see what he or she tells you
