Homeless and on the street

Homeless and on the street

April Saul/Philadelphia Inquirer/MCT

Kimber Knapp, Class of 2013

Alone on the cold dark street

Ignored by everyone who sees them

Treated like trash by everyone they meet

Crawling from their boxes for someone to greet

But yet again, cold and denied

Alone on the cold dark street

Full of despair isn’t so neat

But being by their lonesome

Treated like trash by everyone they meet

Nothing is fair for a person on the street

That is the life they lead

Alone on the cold dark street

Only asking for a small treat

No one is willing to share

Treated like trash by everyone they meet

Left to die at others’ feet

Not knowing how to escape

Alone on the cold dark street

Treated like trash by everyone they meet
