Truth In The Streets

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 
Despair in the streets
Yet hope in their eyes
So many stories
Yet free of disguise

Lost were the jobs
Families and homes
Bound by faith
Feel not alone

Gone are the comforts
Self worth defined
Appear having nothing
Life rebuilt over time

Judged by others
Stand in line they do
Know not their story
Never walked in their shoes

Turn away quickly
Spare change have you none
Priceless the gift
Witness the rising sun

Appreciate all
Taken for granted so much
One life changed
Another hands touch

Proud are they not
Discouraged may be
Our future, our demise
What will you see?
