Homeless Count 2016

010516 st rose church homeless (1)

A record number of volunteers came out
To see what they could do about
Sisters and brothers sleeping in trees
Living lives with heads held high, while crawling on their knees
Found cats sleeping in cars
Sleeping underneath the stars
Mothers or fathers, sisters or brothers, right there beside them
Friends at the bottom sharing a life besotten
of turmoil then gladness
despite all the sadness
Beside each other life is complete
with spirit and companions there is no defeat
