“A Homeless Heart”

When they look at me, what do they see?

a lifetime lived
a career fallen behind?

When they look at me, what do they see?

a dream of who I wanted to be
do they realize I have a name?

When they look at me, what do they see?

childhood memories
a family’s love?

When they look at me, what do they see?

the need for a friend
a soul crying out?

When they look at me, what do they see?

nothing
they look the other way
