Street Life - Poem by Rage'n Curtis

Life can be rough
and life can be good.
Life can be both
when missunderstood.

Out on the streets
where life is served cold,
striving to survive
are the young and the old.

They eat our food
strait out of the trash.
None wanting to do with
sparing some cash.

Cold are the nights
on those chilly winter days
when I walk down the street
I can feel her gaze.

The gaze of a girl
with nothing to loose,
but the clothes on her back
and her only two shoes.

As I look at this girl
all I feel is the pain.
Of how this world will
remain the same.

    The poor will always be with us.All we can hope to do is survive and share.You have a good way of rhyming and raising social conscienceness awareness.Keep writing-we need to be reminded of the less fortunate.A ten from me.BTW I was a hippy and homeless in my younger years but I turned my life around with a little help from my friends.Sometimes all you need is someone to believe in you even if it only yourself.

    the life of the streets
    can make you feel worse
    only if you have the will power
    to get out
    can you tell what will happen

    life on the streets can never be good unless you want it to be (Report) Reply
