Homeless

Homeless

Homeless is my name
I sleep in shame.
I lost it all in a blink of an eye,
all I do is cry.
Homeless is my name.

People stare an laugh, make fun of and run.
This life I live is not fun.
I rummage through garbage you see,
to find just a crumb to eat.
I thirst so much, that my mouth is dry,
and I wish that I would just die.

I lost it all at the hands of others 
A wreckage so big that it took them all away from me.
My wife and two sons was all I had
now there all gone and I'm so very sad.

So when you pass by, don't laugh at me 
because you don't know me.
You don't know the pain I bare
so don't stop to stare.
This is the life I was given.

So remember this good, the next time you pass by
that the life you live can be taken in a blink of an eye.
This may be you an I'll be standing on the other side.
