If I were a box, I would be full of fears and doubts
If I were tape, I would seal that box until the voices stopped
If I were a clock, I would turn back time 'til there was no more
If I were a fan, I would blow away the insecurities
If I were glue, I would paste back the pieces
If I were a question, I would be WHY?
If I were a sentence, I would be a run-on
If I were a bird, I would have no wings
If I were raindrop, I would hide in the clouds
If I were a direction, I would be behind
Homelessness is among us and the people hurt
They feel they have no worth
Combat homelessness before it happens to you
