The Homeless Girl

April 18, 2008
By Dale crouch, Joplin, MO

Hopeless
Undetermined
Sad sapped
no for good
rotten poor person
sits on the road
with attitudes of
of the selfish weighing on their shoulder
like a boulder how can any one hold her as she weeps
were will she eat how can she beat this life called
poverty
she races for truth but they make her life obsolete
she can never compete
especially with a baby on the way
this is the path paved she made her bed now she can sleep in it
oh how they only knew her desire to have a bed
the land of opportunity she can find her own way
she is beat
