Poem called difficult times 
Especially I feel for the homeless people at Christmas we see homeless people on our streets, as they struggle to eat and beating the cold. It breaks my heart and brings a tear to my eye. I wish I way their was a way that I could help them from their homeless people back to their feet with a helping hand.

    Yes, it's always upsetting to see @globster. Particularly at this time of year. Crisis do some good work around this topic.
