HOMELESSNESS

By Josie Whitehead

Homelessness

Winter’s wind blows through the streets;
      The rain joins in for fun –
But being homeless isn’t good
      When all is said and done.

And this - a wealthy country - 
      Is where you’ll find these folk:
Oh, being homeless, on the streets
      For certain’s not a joke!

I huddle in a shop doorway;
       I see folk passing by:
It’s hard to know why I am here
       And I’ll try hard not to cry.

The people passing by glance down:
      There’s pity in their eyes.
I’m not alone out on the streets
      Beneath the winter’s skies.

Don’t judge the sleepers on the streets:
      They could be you or me:
And being homeless – think of this:
      It’s bad, you must agree.
