Homeless

Though visably to look at me, you cannot see the scars

When people see me, and that I am living from my car

I have been displaced, homeless; already close to one year

Most never offering a helping hand; just look at me and sneer

Their immediate assumptions is, that I am just a worthless bum

They think, I don't have any "MONEY", hope she won't ask for some

With your mind already made up; determined not to help

You think, if I give a dollar, I'll take away from self

She goes to the shelter for help; for many rules, she is refused

Why do people who are in positions to help, often abuse?

They think more than likely, she's addicted to drugs

Turn your back, walk away; feeling rather smug

Yes, it is very possible; a drug addiction it could have been

Who are we to judge, god is the only one, to write the end

What if it was the debilitating result, of a lay off, a job loss?

No longer able to pay the bills; on the street, they where tossed

What if it was the unfortunate result, of a person becoming ill?

They now have to choose between paying the rent, or buying pills

What if it was the result, of you not helping another's' hand?

That they were found cold, dead; because together, we will not band

You see, I currently live these things; I have stood on both sides

Sometimes unwilling to help a brother out, walking around, with puffed up pride

Now I am that person, homeless, sometimes hungry, cold, without one dime

I keep seeing those, that I should have helped, in that lost, long distant time

Jesus has instructed us, that we should show love to our neighbor

By following God's commands, is how we acheive his favor

I won't disclose, the long list of reasons, in how I became displaced

It really truly, should matter none, because all, are eligible for God's grace
