santa clara street, in the middle of the night im walking to my car when is was suddenly stopped by a man, very skinny, raggy hair, extremely worn out clothes \"any spare change sir?? no bullshit i need a drink\" i love honesty especially from the unfortunate i gladly gave him a five he lit up and said THANK YOU SIR!! THANK YOU SIR!! \"just for this i owe you a poem what do you say??\" i didnt want to be rude nor did i have anywhere to be at 1:35 in the morning.. he began and it went like this

\"im not seeing very many faces having trouble with shoelaces everyday is a living battle ever since i held a rattle mommy dont you think im pretty daddy dont you think im handsome wait a minute i almost forgot you were never there im so distraught think i did but did i mention? i never got any attention continue on until the end this blanket here is my only friend tears came down when i am leaning occupied when i am dreaming waking up is what i dread id rather go back to being dead wanna see the picture i made it didnt make you grin or amazed i might as well just throw it away and go back to the corner and stay even when i fall to the floor all i see is you ignore when i needed you guys the most i might as well be a fucking ghost!!!\"

i was shocked no words, i tried to complement but i stuttered.... i just gave him another five
