There's Beauty in the Roadside Ditch

Why do these flowers
live in the ditch
for the beauty they have
they should have been rich

Yet in the gutter they lay
homeless they are
while the talents they had
should have taken them far

Musicians and singers
artists and veterans
mothers with children
and youths by the legions

The problem it seems
those who can help just don't see them
and they've really no idea
that they're missing a gem

Their lives could be blessed
if they'd slow down just a bit
and see the homeless as people
rather than mere misfits

But their eyes stay averted
afraid they'll be shook
while in the gutter there's beauty
if they only would look
