Tears formed in my eyes as i looked out onto the vast landscape that was before my eyes....

All i see is Broken Dreams and Terrible Heartache......
Do you think i choose to be Homeless?
25 years i have been like this, the system failed me and so many others.....

But hey i'm Walter and i am a man with a voice of reason.....

Who am i? i could be your brother, your father, or your son. I am homeless....

I walk the streets all day looking just to make it.....
Through the day people look at me and whisper to others about how i look and how i smell.....

Never knowing the real person that resides within me.....

As you go about your lives in your nice beautiful homes, i try to stay warm on very cold days for i am homeless.....

As you lay your heads down to sleep in nice warm beds. I am trying to sleep anywhere i can....

Rooftops and Doorways, Park Benches and so on. I am a man with pride never asking for anything......

Through my struggles over the last 25 years, one constant has always remained....

24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and that is my Heavenly Father, through him i am able to hold my head high....

My name is Walter and yes i am homeless, but look deep into these teary eyes and you will see a man with a voice of reason.
