DC Homeless

Homelessness: Jim Hubbard photo
Those people in DC are just like me
They’re hungry
They’re ready
To smile
Always able to talk to a stranger
Kind to a fault
Deserving better
Always feeling poorer
Never understanding
that life
what you do
after the world tries to
take you
in a spiral
of dysentery
filtering out that
bad stuff
was never good stuff
just a festering wound
that struck after
striking again and again
and never healed
DC people are like me
They’re hungry
They’re eating but
never satisfied
and that ain’t bad
in the end
the will to survive
is what makes you
stronger than anyone
there is no end
everything recycles itself and heals
the rain will come
the sun will shine
and when…
