I can't imagine being alone and homeless at christmas. I am lucky.

Spare change for Xmas

Spare us some change ?
I'm so alone
People discard me
On there way home

Tomorrow morning
There up opening gifts
While I find some warmth
In the hall by the lifts

They clear up the rubbish
Fill up there bins
With boxes I could use
To spend a night in

Kids pray for snow
Great fun for all
One more bad winter
Will be my downfall

I don't feel well
I'm feeling so cold
My legs have gone knumb
My body is old

Christmas alone
5 years its been
Sitting in this place
Feeling cold and unclean

Someones coming
He looks in my range
Last chance today
Spare us some change ?

A chilling reminder of those less fortunate than ourselves at a "giving" time of year. Very powerful and thought prevoking words, enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing.

Reminds us all to give give give this upcoming holiday season



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

A very real reminder that not everyone is so fortunate as to have a home and family to go to at what is supposed to be the most joyous time of year.  It's nice to see others who have a heart for the homeless.  Well done.

If I could have I would have helped this man. I'll remember your poem when I'm out Christmas shopping.

Thanks for the replies, it is nice to hear people who also realise there are less fortunate people than ourselves.
I moan sometimes but I know things could be alot worse.

A great piece portraying the flip side of all is merry and bright.  I remember finacially trying times when I felt so alone even though I had a home and family.  Well done.
