No one puts 'BECOME HOMELESS' on their 'To Do' list.
No one in the educational community offers a 'GATEWAY TO HOMELESSNESS' as part of their curriculum.
No one in the careers field suggests 'HOMELESSNESS' as a vocational option.
No one encourages their child to 'BE HOMELESS' when they grow up.
And there's a reason for that...
Is not an aspiration
It's a dire
So don't judge
Don't walk on by
If someone's out there
There is a reason why
But you don't need to know it
Their business is their own
Just maybe stop
And have a chat
Help change homelessness
