There shouldn't be any homeless people No one sleeping in a box Lying on the sidewalk Asleep on the church steps
No one should go hungry Foraging thru a dumpster Begging for a nickel or a dime To survive another day
No parent should have to bury their child Killed by the police Slaughtered by their own kind Gone before their time
No one should suffer from abuse Women from men Men from women And children from anyone
No none of this should happen But unfortunately it does Somewhere in the world A man, woman, or child
Tries to live. Tries to survive
