why walk by

October 23, 2006 § Leave a comment

i saw her selling flowers
on the corner of the street
she was old and the flower
was tired through the day
and she was sad
was it real or just pretending?
it’s the question i always ask
while passing one of them
them who don’t have a good job
them who don’t have a shiny home
like the ones you see on tv shows

and yet i have to wonder
do they need a lot
do i have too much
who’d have to take responsibility?
at what income?
is it their fault that they’re poor
is it my fault they’re poor?

why is that some people have more than others…
why is that some people never ask for help –
they’d rather die
while others make you feel sad
sitting there on the street
alone tired helpless

and they make you wonder
why
you always walk by
and think
i’ll help them… next time
