Nothing But Love

I may be homeless

but I’m still human

I have a heart

you know

How could I live

with myself

if I had run away

when others needed help

I have nothing

but love

that no bomb

or knife

or angry word

can take away

You have nothing

but hate

for a world

you don’t understand

I have nothing

but hope

for the people

who walk the streets

I sleep on.


Inspired by the kindness of a homeless man in Manchester 22 May 2017
