The Empty Bed

We are dormant to the suffering on our very own doormats. The social system today allows for the normality of homelessness, but that very system we are conditioned to protect is insane. The ignorance is cold, the truth concrete, and our humanity is stripped. The naked concerns for each other are bare. Our city streets are home to many homeless, but the truth is that there are far more empty beds. We are all one, and together is how we truly succeed.
