Loose Change

They passes him by

He gives them a hi

But they continue to ignore

His body feels tired and sore

It’s been days since his last meal

This is his life and it’s all too real

An empty cup rests on the sidewalk

Tired eyes close while he continues to talk

But his words fall onto deaf ears

His hopefulness remains clear

He knows someone will donate to his cause

Endless nights pass he counts stars

Wishing for a better life than what he’s been given

Sometimes he regrets living

But as money finally fills his cup

His spirits are lifted up

His faith in humanity is restored

He looks up and thanks the lord
