Despairs

Poetry By: ERcubed

I saw some homeless people begging for work or money just so they can eat and survive. I was inspired to put pen to paper.

Living in your country

Lying on the street

Your country feeds me garbage

As you hand me defeat

Standing on the corner

Holding up my sign

"Will work for food"! it reads

But you just pass me by

Living in a paper box

No where else to stay

I try to get back on top

But you just push me away

Living in your country

Lying on the street

Your country feeds me garbage

As you hand me defeat

-----Inspiration often comes when we lest expect it and usually in unformaliar places----
