Homeless In The Winter©

The coldness hardens their smiles

Their only worry is for where they will next lay their head

Once the sun has gone for the day

Each shelter is filled to capacity

There’s no food to be found

Their stomach has a lion’s roar

Their limbs are frozen like stone

Cardboard boxes and sleeping bags line the alley’s

Each person knowing that it won’t be enough once night falls

They rush to layer their clothing before more coldness hits

Hoping no one takes their spot

Tucked in for the night with a single blanket to shield them

They pray that the temperature won’t drop below freezing

They pray that no one will harm them as they lay sleeping

They pray that they will wake up and if they’re lucky

Tomorrow will be different

I’m homeless but not invisible© 2015

by Felina Silver Robinson

I stand on many a corner

Outside of you favorite coffee shops

I sleep on park benches

or the nearest

cardboard box

I always asked for spare change

But politely with a smile

I may not look neat in appearance

As I have no money to clean my clothes

or tend to my hygiene

Each day when I wake up

I find myself asking

Just how did I end up here

But I remind myself that

“I’m homeless but not invisible”

And

If someone was willing to help me

Maybe they could then see me

As the person

I truly am

And not the person

Who has fallen so deeply

Out of grace in this place

Where everyone is so quick to judge

Please open your eyes so you can once again see me
