For some reason people like to hate me . . . but I'm okay with that.
And eye for an eye.
What Gives Me Hope
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Legalizing spiritual discovery.
What/who changed my life and why
I look down the street, and I see the side of homelessness most people don't see. I see the side they ignore. The rejection, and self loathing. The humiliating world of prostitution and panhandling. I see people who have lived their nothing lives the same way, day in and day out for years. I see hunger, and addiction, and abuse.
I look across the sidewalk, and I see myself, reflected in the windows, dirty, and tired, and used up, tin can in hand. In between me and my reflection I see people in suits too busy with their important lives to stop and drop me a few cents.
Across the street, I see Bernie. The man of the hour, who runs this street. Bernie, the saint, who helped me get my life back, when it was slipping away.
