You pass me by

You pass me by every day; And I wonder - what you really think? Lost in my thoughts, sitting on the streets; With no place to call home. Every day I linger in the same place. I wait - hoping for someone to rescue me. Reaching out my hands; Hoping to catch a few coins ; To... Continue Reading →
