Would You Like A Piece Of My Heart?

There are so many people that for one reason or the other, are sad, alone, and spend many a night in their homes, behind locked doors, and in need of comfort. As you walk down the streets of any city, you might meet a homeless person with his only bed being a cardboard box, spread out on the hard concrete or under an overpass.
He might have lost his family, or his home, or his job, and yet we walk by ignoring him, instead of attempting to comfort him or help in a small way. There are just as many sad people in homes and outside of homes, as there are happy people, and yet, we tend to ignore the sad, and team up with the happy. It’s our nature I suppose.
Our home was destroyed in a fire 4 years ago, we are still fighting the insurance company and live in our backyard in a trailer, we have no water, i went nextdoor with my last 20 dollars to ask if i could please use their hose for just 5 minutes, for $20. 00 and the answer was no. I was so humiliated.
I walk down the alley with sparkletts bottles to get water and everyone drives by. You know how hot it is and how dirty i am but you do not offer a hand.
Please everytime i see anyone that needs help i offer an hand, from loading groceries to getting the elderly out of the heat, i don't have any money to give, but i have a smile, and a prayer.
Please everyone, don't be my next door neighbor, yes water is precious but life is moreso. God bless you all.
