I see this boy walk around,
His back turned against the crowd.
As he walks all alone,
I realize this boy has no home.
I see this girl walk around,
Her back turned against the crowd.
As she begs from people on the street,
I realize this girl has nothing to eat.
I watch this happen everyday,
People just won't help these little strays.
As they continue their pitiful lives,
These kids know they won't survive.
One morning, when I opened my store,
I saw the 2 sitting against a door.
My heart sank as I knew their fate,
Another day sitting at that gate.
It was then that someone came running up,
To the 2 whimpering like a pup.
A underage teen working at the mine,
Gave the 2 a small shining dime.
As that young teen walked away,
I realized he worked hard everyday.
To earn that extra little dime,
For the 2 little kids who could've died.
