My little boy asked me one day
"Mommy, what's up with that man,
Why is it that he's searching
For things in the garbage can?"

I had to sit him down
And explain this simply to him,
"He's searching for bottles to get money
When his days grow so weary and dim."

"Now, listen up my little one
Not everyone is as lucky as we,
Never make fun of a poor person
It isn't very nice, you see?"

I've seen this many times
Since I was a little girl,
I never made fun of any of them
As I knew this world could be cruel.

My little guy asked me about this, after seeing a man searching through the garbage can outside for bottles. I had to let him know, that this man had to try his best to make the best out of life, the best way he could.

I've also won awards for this one.

Life is what you make it.
