Streetboy

He is an endurer
of all pain;
a tough cookie
to combat it all!
.
.
He is an observer:
hovering down the streets.
Too vulnerable to contain reproach
yet stand it tall.
.
.
He is a survivor
of all hatred and gore.
Born with finite favours,
his hopes aren't small!
.
.
He is a human-
of same flesh and skin;
his fortune turn deaf
and desires blown in a squall.
.
.
Yes, he is homeless:
deprived of love and care.
His heart melt and frost
While his dreams barely pay a call.
