Birdsong to the homeless

If you’ve never experienced the chaos
Of your life crashing down around you
How can you ever understand
The chaos that is your life?

Just smile politely.

Do you really think the song we share
Sounds the same to both of us?
Because they may sound quite happy
When you occasionally notice
But the birds are lamenting
To those who are forced to listen.

  1. You should talk to me. I’ll listen, and try to help.

    But this poem was fantastic, and I loved it.

  2. The last six lines are particularly good
