Looking down a street left and right
There is always seems to be a homeless man in my sight
He is covered in an assortment of clothes from head to toe
But this person, I do not know
It is sad to say that my thoughts of them are unknown
That it is simply how I was raised, that is how I have grown
But spending time in this City unheard
There is so much that I have found out and have learned
That man has a story just like me and you
It only takes a five minute conversation to pick up on that clue
He is a mechanic, a writer, a man
And he is not always looking for a bed or a hand
What this man would like is a minute or two
For you to say “Hello”, or “How are you”?
Find out their name, their life, and their story
And you just might receive some of their glory
The glory to sit down, to hear and learn
From the experiences of those whose candle light still burn
We all have a seat at the round table of old
Whether it is warm, hot, chilly, or cold
So listen and learn, that is all I have to say.
Thank you, and have a nice day.
