Liliana Roman (10-20-96 / sanbernodino, california)
All of those cars
Filled with food they're never gonna eat
Some but barely none give me something worth while
Most don’t even look at all
They know I'm here
I'm not invisible
I might as well be
It angers me
When I see a fake homeless one get all the goods
And when they're done for the day
They gather up all of their money and food
And hop in their red mustang to their fancy two-story house.
But today is a different day
They didn’t just drive past
They opened their door and told me to get in
I was skeptical at first
But I thought, what else have I got to lose?
When the car stopped
It stopped in front of a grand house
Big enough to house the world
As I was staring in awe a flood of children came running out the door
It scared me at first
But then I saw their smiles
I smiled and ran with the children up onto the porch
A little girl looked up at me and said
'if you walk into this house you are accepting this gift but if you walk away you will be denying the gift.'
I smiled and took a step forward into an entirely new life
