The job, lost with a sigh of resignation
Unemployment checks come to a sudden halt,
Then the lights and apartment went
It’s not supposed to be this way....
Restrooms are beauty shops,
Dumpsters rival WalMart for variety and choices
The last stop in a downward spiral.
It wasn’t supposed to be like this
It was just for a little while,
Just for the summer, in the warmth….the children play
At new campsites along rivers and in back yards
Then fall came.
A light comes through the fog of despair
A helping hand, a friend forgotten
And we try again with new found hope,
That this time we’ll make it….
It’s not supposed to be this way, but it is.
