A Kind Enough Person

A kind enough person who has never done anyone wrong
For all of his life he has been struggling along
And few wish to know of you when you are down
And doing it tough on the poor side of the town
Ninety percent of working age where he lives are unemployed
He is one of the many without luck on their side
Homeless in his late teens without a postal address
It is a long climb from where he lives to the summit of success
For robbery to buy narcotics a federal crime
His parents in prison serving jail time
Yet to his higher self he is one who remains true
And for not drinking alcohol or taking narcotics some credit he is due
A homeless teenager on the poor side of the town
Where none wish to know of the financially down.
