People on the streets


I walk streets at night

To see how the homeless cope

Sleeping in doorways

In cardboard boxes

In old sleeping bags

And secondhand covers

Holes in their shoes

Piss stained clothes

Wrapped up warm

To try and keep out the cold

Unsure how this can happen

In an advanced society

This is the greatest concern to me

Not what people think

Or how they percieve me

But how and why people

Are left to live on the street

Society needs to change drastically

We need to find a way

To create a fairer more equal society

We need to lift people off the street

And lift people out of poverty

So judge me how you will

My thoughts are with those living

Tonight on the harsh cold streets.
