You are not alone

You are not alone.
Many of us who don’t have a home,
a place to store our things,
but to publish this poem, “a well job done.”
If I missed her name, she wasn’t my son.
And prepare great meals
I mean a homeless entertainer is a major deal,
See the odds are against you
And the money has not dropped,
To be creative I will try and never be stopped.
See what goes up, must come down,
To lose all your belongings and still get off the ground.
To create a character that nobody could resist, see what God did for Tyler Perry is every homeless man
Now, didn’t you watch the movie Hitch? If I had Will Smith’s money,
My whole city would be rich;
See poverty and provided habits
That the unfortunate partake,
Not everybody gets a voucher
17 years I had to wait.
And a few of my friends, ponder my fate
Tomorrow’s not promised, nobody knows
Their date (Crystal) Blackout at Woodley Zoo and woke up at Tenley AU, give me 5 mins to finish this poem, boo.
To nod off on the trains, just to handle the pain
It’s too hot, it’s too cold,
Can’t nobody explain.
No pot to piss in and no money to exchange
To wash your body and lock your door,
People take it for granted, but what we need is more.
Powerful political Tylers, undisputed by the Smiths,
To manifest God’s greatest gift,
To set a dream with a stone,
To fly over this storm, to show us who you are.
It’s not where you been, and it’s not where you from —
A homeless entertainer is more than a bum.
Now karma is a wheel, and love is just a meal.
The ups and downs of life rolling hills,
Don’t give up, it’s not too late.
God put us here, we just have to wait.
MLK had a vision Malcolm forsaked,
Left eye was too late,
And Aliyah never dreamed
“Rock the Boat” was her last scene.
Homelessness is a label people judge by it’s cover,
Don’t write a book Mango, can’t nobody discover,
Life is a journey and entertainers come a dime a dozen
I wish I should of, could of,
Not I wish, I really wasn’t
True story.
