The Proud of Heart

Did you see him?
He just walked into the store wearing a high priced suit.
Stuffing several plastic grocery bags, with stolen food being, his loot.
If the police saw him they would shoot.
But, he wears a disguise of a new designer suit.
Comfortably, he walks up and down the aisles.
Taking stolen food!
He stole the filet mignon.
He yawns.
Casually walking out of the store wearing, his fancy designer shoes'.
He smiles.
While facing life's trials,
He walks like a proud man on stolen time.
Before, he's incarcerated for his crime.
He walks out as if the world owes him.
Who is he?
