    Poem Commentary

    homeless people

    People on the street

    Most of us have a nice place to live
    What would we do if it were suddenly
    taken away?
    My heart grieves for these people
    who have no home of their own

    What would the homeless people give
    To spend one night where we live?

    They stir in the night on the streets
    They live in boxes or under a bridge
    wishing they had a place to live
    Some of them are lonely vets who have
    fallen on bad luck 
    Because a sickness or some other stuff

    Some nights they are so cold  
    They must find somewhere to sleep
    Maybe a warm shelter if they are lucky
    and get a warm meal to eat

    The streets are rough and tough
    I don't know how they do it
    It must be terrible moving from place
    to place

    We can lock our doors and close our
    mind but they are there

    I hope and pray they will find a way to
    get off those lonely streets and find them
    a home to stay

    thank you for reading and commenting on my poem!

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
