Daily Prompts- Homeless

He is forgotten by the people, left alone

Branded a felon, given a wide berth

His life wasn’t always like this or this hard

He used to be someone with a name and an address

Now he is at the bottom of the food chain

Eating food thrown away by the others

Existing at the fringe of this heartless society

He expects nothing from those he sees daily

There is no shelter from pouring rain or burning sun

From Monday to Sunday, week after week

He is never first in line always the last

This should not be his ending, we should make sure

Give his life a better caption, help him find his purpose again

Today’s RDP Prompt is homeless. So I’m sharing my poem from a couple of days ago!

In response to the following prompts;




Ending, Caption, Bottom






Word of the day challenge;

  1. It’s a disgrace that we have so many homeless people. For some it is a choice, but there should be more mental health help available and there should be food and hygiene places available too.
    I’m kind to all of them. I wasn’t even especially rude to the dude in my yard.

    1. It is indeed a disgrace to see them living in cardboard boxes of sleeping in the front of shops in the cold weather. You’re so right mental health issues play a very vital part in homelessness of many people.

  2. It’s sad that in such a beautiful, thriving city like Seattle, the wealth disparity gap just gets larger and larger making it easier for families to fall between the cracks. When I volunteered in a worker house, I chatted with many homeless folks. Some had college degrees, some formerly had homes, We should help however we can to help them get back on their feet.

  3. I had one friend who was homeless after his parents moved to another town leaving him with no place to stay. He struggle quiet a while before he found work and a cheap apartment. With no address a lot of employers wouldn’t even look a him. Now I know another friend living in a tent city. He traveled by choice camping across county but is now in search of a job and home settled into a city. They all have their stories… they are not bad people, just people life has dealt a hard blow to. Great piece Sadje!
