Happiness is only a theory.
Fate is my only enemy.

Shivering by the streets
I wave
But they only laugh
Throwing their garbage at me
"Get a job" they shout
"and a shower while you're at it!"
Don't they know better
I cry on the curb
Wishing they were in my shoes
Maybe they would change their minds
Think twice
But then I would be the fool
To be saying such things
They could never be kind
To a poor beggar like me
Never would they show
An act of courtesy
I don't know
If they would do such things for me
I'm poor
On the Street
With nobody to comfort me
