About the Poem

I was watching TV and was inspired by the homeless people in our country. A country that is blessed with so much that we take for granted. It is time that we love one another and help a bother or sister out with what we have been given.

This was written for all the homeless people, the burden on my heart, to make a change and a difference through love!

Entertain Angels Unaware

I lie awake cold and alone,
No place to call my home,

Upon the night,
Darkness is my light,

Everywhere I roam,
To find a place to sleep,

With no shoes upon my feet,
No material things do I keep,

The ground is cold,
My stomach is empty,
As I see people who have plenty.

No one cares for me,
For I am homeless you see,

I have had a hard life,
It started the day I lost my wife,

I don't want sorrow or pity,
Just some love and care,

Maybe some shampoo to wash my hair.
People pass me by,

Without a tear in their eye,
Never giving a hand,

What If I was an angel?
Sent from God above.

To test man of,
His brotherly love?

You will never know,
If you never give true brotherly love,

For we entertain angels unaware,
Never knowing the true spirit hidden there,

This poem is given,
To you as a lesson,

Whenever passing someone in need,
Let go of the greed,

Stop and heed to your heart,
To the call your heart has be given,

Help those in need,
While you are living,

And you will entertain angels unaware!

I liked your poem alot Possitive awarness is a great thing to have and to keep especially in a confusing place like earth
Nellie
I believe we have become hardened to the sufferings of others. As this poem showed, we don't know the reasons, and if we had to bear their burdens we might well be even worse off. Thank you for this reminder. Be blessed!
Lisette
love this poem. it's beautiful and inspiring.
steve
Thank you for having a Heart. It was fantastic. These people truley have no home, no food, holes in their shoes. I am ashamed that I have a home as comfortable as I do, and they have nothing. Something is very wrong in our land, and your Poem points it out quite well. We have become a Money Worshiping Nation, and it's very sad.
Tiffany
That was such a beautiful poem. If everyone in the world would go by that the world would be a better place. This poem has inspired me to go out in the wolrd and do something and have others come with me. THANK YOU & GOD BLESS
Judy
I think the poem is very true each day we entertain an angel unaware without knowing it. If we help everyone in need this world would be a better place. you never know someday down the road you might need help and look for somone with a lending hand. and what u do for others will someday come back to you. i really enjoyed reading the poem.
Nice
This one is a beauty !
Nic
I really liked this poem. It makes ignorant people look at it in a new light. But if they really don't care, then they will go on not caring. This poem was a good inspirational poem.
Ariel
way to go, it's really a good poem. it opens most of the peoples eyes once they reflect on it. and this people acn may a difference and make other peoples life easier.
Rich
This is a great inspirational poem. That poem is so true, and is reality. We should look at this and learn. Treat the homeless how you would like to be treated if you were in there shoes. But great job, well done!
Angelica
