"Assisting people in re-gaining hope and a better way of life."

sitting on a bench in a parking lot
watching people go by
not saying much about who they are
because nobody questions why

sleeping under bridges
or in the woods of our town
wandering the streets
til it is safe when the sun goes down

in our local stores
there are many who work
but I question this to you "would you shop there
if you knew they were a homeless clerk?"

in schools their outfits look worn
their grades tend to slide
but in a car behind a dumpster
they live and hide

why do you ignore them
or claim in our town they do not exist
when in Williamsburg, Virginia
they walk within our midst?

there are some who are fascinating
and many that want to try
but do you ever notice
the tears in their eyes?

we have people who want to help
by dropping a dollar or two
or donate food to feed them
but to sit down with them are few

some who claim they are Christians
but if they only knew
God commands you to help His people
so remember Jesus was homeless too
