Cracks on the pavement…

Its getting too cold now
The rain, damp, wetting through
No place to go
Nothing to do

I could ask for help
But then, whats the use?
They see our labels
Our oft, brand new shoes

If one person fakes it
That spoils our help call
But the new clothes and shoes
were donated by all

Yes, please believe it
There are people that give
Thats how we survive,
That’s how we live!

Surviving daily in fear
suffering depression, ill health
tired, weak and hungry
in the divide caused by wealth

We are caught in a spiral
stuck dead in our tracks
Just more homeless people
caught in the cracks.

Please spare a thought for the homeless this winter!
