Beautiful People

By Wendy Shepard-Kalan

Beautiful people all around me
Through dirty clothes and sad faces
So much more that I see
In the lowest of places

She sits there on the bench
Out in the cold
Beyond the stench
Stoic and bold

Others walk by
Blind to her plight
I stare and wonder why...
It's just not right.

I slowly sit down too
I smile, say hello
she screams at me to "Shoo".
I jump up ready to go

As I walk away
Her eyes shine,
a smile
She is beautiful today

Before their hopes faded
And they just gave in,
Dreams, all they contemplated
Thinking they can't win...

There are so many beautiful people in the park
Through eyes of love I see
They are no longer shadows in the dark
They are the spirit of you, of me.
