Eyes Open and Hands Out

Eyes Open and Hands Out

A Poem by M. View

 

…Eyes Open and Hands Out…
 
 
My eyes are open and my hands is out
But no one sees me
even though I stand out
They say things like “not today and I don’t have it
Get a job, get a life” and I all ready have it
A life that they do not know about and ashamed of
Cause we live in the land of the free the brave and brotherly love
They don’t have it but they don’t finish what is on their plate
Through away things that can be used at a later date
Through away everything instead of washing and cleaning out
At the way its going soon you will be able to do that with your mouth
The work that made us famous is gone overseas
No way to help or feed my kids with no factories
The mom and pop stories being closed down
Because the Mega Mart are popping up in lots in towns
Those that say they don’t have it today I don’t mind
Because I know that they will help at the right time
Some day I hope this all changes and people open their eyes
Then maybe to big business it would not be such a surprise
To see me this child on the streets
With my hand out and open eyes………
