Just because I’m homeless…

July 16, 2011

A reflection after a day on the streets of Atlanta, July 2011, hearing the stories of the homeless among us.

Just Because I’m Homeless, Doesn’t Mean…
… I’m stupid,
… I’m penniless,
… I’m hungry,
… I’m crazy,
… I stink,
… I don’t want to work
… I don’t have a choice where I live,
… I don’t have an opinion about school reform
… I don’t have a sense of humor
… I can’t spot hypocrisy,
Just because I’m homeless, doesn’t mean I’m not loved, and what’s more, it doesn’t mean that I can’t love you, just as you are.

I invite your thoughts and insights.
