If you haven’t personally seen them on the streets, consider yourself lucky.

One Good Piece of Sheet
That’s all I ask
To lay on the cold ground
And wrap around
My front and back
To pull up over my head
Without exposing my feet
To the freezing night’s air
To withstand a deluge
And keep the chills
Off my skin
To use until
The good earth becomes
My one good piece of sheet

This makes me sad. Combined with the picture it packs a powerful punch. How I wish I could help ALL the children…
It’s a shared wish. Makes it even sadder now that Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming….
such a sin that any child should have such a life. woe unto them that make it so.
powerfully done my friend.
Thank you. It’s a little thing I do to make people aware. And yes, I can’t find any compassion at all for those who make children suffer so….
