The Man on Main Street

When I watch you
Wrapped up like a spoiled orange
Sitting, surrounded by fleas and tics
Or
When I watch you
My eyes water from pain and
Sorrow from your sufferings
Or
When I watch you
One of the best athletes
In the city, most popular
Guy in the school
Because
When I watched you
I stand in pride
As I see you rise
