Stories from the Streets

The child on the street
With matted hair
And dirty feet
Juggling oranges or limes
Begging for just a dime

Abuelita on the corner
No one to look after her
She's at home but feels like a foreigner
Wearing the same clothes everyday
Looking for someone to take her cares away

Carlos de la calle
Begging for another drink
Wasting away on the inside
Doesn't care if he dies
As he stumbles down the street

Twelve year old boy missing his mom and dad
Abandoned for the United States
Angry at the world around
Ends up with a gun in hand
Proving loyality to his new found friends
