Your actions show who you truly are far more than your abilities.- J.K. Rowling

I was wlaking around town just the other day
When a man looked up at me and I heard him say
All you see when you look at the streets
Are the appearance of people like me
You think I am bad news, that i'll never change
But do you know I haven't always been this way?
I had people that loved me, and those I loved to
But that in essence is how I met my doom
I had a little girl, about your age
that is when everything really did change
I heard about it on the news
Before I even knew wat to do
It happened while she was on her way to work
Do you know what it is like to feel that hurt?
I no longer knew the point of life
I lost my little girl and then my wife
Now you see me on the streets
With vacant eyes and nothing to eat
I just thought that you may like to know
That the truth is more difficult than what you think you may know
I couldn't believe what I had just heard
How can I have everything?
What is wrong with the world?

The author's comments:
The majority of people rarely venture outside of their own comfort zone, the turn a blind eye to the problems of others that surround them. I urge you to volunteer your time to a charity and help others, to learn their stories and instead of wanting more, appreciate what you have. Remember it can always be worse. The people I have met are amazing and the stereotypes are very misleading. People are people and you should treat them just like you would treat anyone else. at the end of the day if you don't help a fellow human in trouble you are ignorant and when you are in trouble you will never get the help yourself.
