Can I tell you
What it feels like to be out in the cold?
Hearing no one
But the whisper of wind.
Can I tell you how many holes
Have been ripped in this blanket?
Like society
Ripped me from its web
Can I tell you how it pains
To see advertisements
A life of others
But not yours?
It's luck, they say.
But they can't sell luck
No one can tell me how it feels
Except a bowl of
Warm tomato soup

This article is not meant to cause offense in any way. It is supposed to raise the awareness of homeless people. I tried to put myself in their shoes for a moment.
