Navigating tomorrow’s compass

In the heart of this great nation, where dreams are born anew,
A coalition stands united, to shed light on a truth so true.
For in the shadows of prosperity, where dreams can disappear,
The National Coalition for the Homeless asks, “Where do we go from here?”
In the city’s endless bustle, where ambition knows no bounds,
There exists a stark reminder of those lost, who wander in their rounds.
Through the alleys and the byways, where despair so often seers,
The question lingers in the air, “Where do we go from here?”
The homeless, not faceless, but with stories to unfold,
Carry burdens, silent battles, in the search for warmth and gold.
In the heart of this great struggle, where injustice often sneers,
A plea arises from their souls, “Where do we go from here?”
The coalition, like a beacon, shines a light on darkened streets,
Advocating, caring, striving, to make homelessness retreat.
In the tapestry of their mission, compassion surely steers,
As they strive for lasting answers, “Where do we go from here?”
With every shelter offered, with every meal and care,
They combat the indifference, alleviate the great despair.
But the ultimate solution, not just soothing present tears,
Demands a forward-looking vision, “Where do we go from here?”
It’s a question for our consciences, a challenge for our hearts,
To redefine society’s compass, where every life imparts,
The promise of a home, where love can reappear,
As we ponder, plan and act, “Where do we go from here?”
The coalition’s mission, not just to provide respite,
But to ignite a revolution, where hope takes its rightful height.
A world where homelessness retreats, where compassion perseveres,
In their tireless quest, they find the answer, “We go forward from here.”
So let us stand beside them, let empathy guide our way,
For together we’ll discover a brighter, kinder day.
In the face of this great challenge, with conviction so sincere,
We’ll forge a path to change, as we boldly say, “We shall and we will go
from here.”
