Though visably to look at me, you cannot see the scars
When people see me, that I am living from my car
I have been displaced, homeless; almost 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; 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 your brothers' 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, walking around, with puffed up pride
Now I am that person, homeless, sometimes hungry, cold, without one dime
I keep seeing those, that I could 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
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
