I may be poor...
...but they got none..

I have my family...
...but they're all alone..

I have a house...
...they have a box..

I've got clothes...
...they shiver in the cold..

I've got dinner...
...they have empty cans..

I can't stand to see a fellow human in need...
...of all the things I already have..

That's why I donate you see...
...I have all I need..

It's why I work at a homeless shelter...
Give to the poor...
Feed the hungry...
House the homeless...
Donate my clothes...
Keep them company...


...why don't you?
Poem inspired from what I see at the homeless shelter, I work at...

Poem (c) ~DockMadchen

it really moves you when you see someone who doesn`t have practically anything...

I try to help every time i can, but still... The efforts are not enough...

I would if I could.. But there are some people who need what they have. I'm not meant to be sounding selfish or anything right now.. But some people do need whatever they can get there hands on or THEY will end up homeless. I'd really like to help the homeless, but at the moment I can't do anything.. :(
