He wanders the streets, a taste for food, a thirst for drink,
Cold to the bones, waiting for a warm place to sleep.
Asking for that which comforts his pain,
Pride and self respect are put aside.
A human being, a man with a story,
A beggar today without any glory,
Taking what he wants, no morals or remorse.
Criminal thoughts, a good man not,
Working for nothing, he does not care.
He steals anything, he has no heart,
A thief many times over, a quitter of sorts.
A beggar, a thief, so many differences of course.
The devils eyes have a face that lies,
It smiles at you with promises so false.
Giving you gifts of sinful things,
Changing your appearance, a picture of greed and evil.
It taunts you into believing that bad is good,
Material belongings are most precious, love not kind.
Stand and be recognized, a face that lies,
Don’t stare in the eyes of what does not cry.
Accept not a wish, not a gift from a demon spirit,
Give not of yourself, in an instance he’ll own your soul.
A face that lies has many by his side,
They walk as you walk, do not be fooled, this is no heavenly stroll to the sky.
Once in awhile i travel back in time to a place i walked,
Through my time of youth where i played and ran wild.
I knew of her as a child back in the day of mischief,
Young and full of energy were we, never seemed to be tired.
The heat from the Summer sun wasn’t so harsh at that age,
Growing up in a town of many friends and memories so great.
We lived for the moment as many moments would pass by into the future,
How is it that the grandparents we once had we have now become.?
We changed and went our separate ways, finding our way in this strange world,
Becoming parents, having children and grandchildren as the cycle goes.
Full circle as today we find ourselves in the same place after a lifetime apart,
As long as we’re together nothing else matters, time comes when we need to
Just think of ourselves and let all others live and move along into their future.
As long as we’re together, everything will forever be better.
