I saw you in a crowd
But
For some reason
I only noticed you

Maybe it was
Your ragged clothes
Or the cart you pushed along
With all you owned
Inside

I fallowed you
To your home
All it was
A small cardboard box

I watched you
Dig through the trash
For your dinner

While you slept
With nothing but a small
Thin sheet
In the freezing snow

I observed

Realizing
My life was better than
I gave credit
