This Is Me

This Is Me

2 mins 211 2 mins 211

Yes this is me 

Can you recognize me

The kid you once knew

The kid you abused

And abandoned

When I was quite young


Yes this is me

Do you recognize me

The kid who had nothing 

No one to love me

No one cared for me

No one to call my own

No home to stay

No roof over my head

No friends to play

No food to eat


Yes this is me

The streets became my home

The beggars the vagrants

My only company 

The rain and sun my roof

The moon my night light

The cold dirty pavement 

Was my bed sometimes wet 

Sometimes dry 


The dustbin my kitchen

Might I add it was also portable kitchen

I had some nice food to

Take away was always ready

I even got soft drinks to

All for free in the trash

Sometimes I even got clothes to wear

And other nice stuff

That no one wanted anymore 

But to me, it meant so much

And this made me happy


But that was then

Today I beg no more

But I am able to help others

I don't sleep on the dirty pavements

Where I once call home

I've built a home for many

I don't search the dustbin anymore

I have a huge kitchen 

Where each day we cook and feed them all


But today I only 

Came to say thank you 

For the pain and the hardships I endured

Had it not been for that

I would not have known

What it felt like to be a beggar a vagrant 

What it felt like to be poor

What it felt like to have nothing 

What it felt like to have nobody

What loneliness felt like

What abuse felt like


All this made me humble

And more determined to be a better man

To become somebody someday

Today this is me

I educated myself 

I got my dream job

I am able to help others

And make a better life for us all

Yes this is me

This is the person I am now

Do you remember me?
