I am hurt.
I am pain.
I am despair.
I am lost and alone.
I cry out in anguish, and none here my screams.
I reach out to you, and you cross the street.
My eyes meet yours, and you turn away.
I ask for help, and you send me away.
I am the fallen.
I am the homeless.
I am the misunderstood.
I am the widowed and divorced.
If help came it was to little too late.
If help came it was given grudgingly.
If help came it was too superficial.
If help came it was after the need had passed.
I had a need to be understood, where was your compassion?
I had a need for forgiveness, all I got were accusations.
I had a need to be held, and got pushed away.
I had a need for love, and all I got was anger and hate.
I am the forgotten, and misplaced.
I am one of those that fell between the cracks.
I am one of the lost no one wishes to find.
I am a wounded soul who fell away from the path.
I know what it is like to be homeless because I have been homeless. I know the face of despair, not because I have looked in the mirror, but because I have looked into the eyes of those with no hope. Humanity stands upon the edge of true greatness even as it stand upon the edge of self-
Humanity as a whole could put an end to world hunger tomorrow if it really wanted to. All the killing would end if the world would rise up and destroy all their weapons of war. Everyone could have a warm safe comfortable place to live in and access to state-
My dream is to create a research center to study ways to improve the quality of life for all of humanity. This is more than just an exploration, for I would like to build and export the developed technology to the world for free if necessary. I want to house the homeless, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and care for the sick and injured on a worldwide scale.
Without a little help all my dream will ever be is just a dream. The multiple web sites I maintain are for the purpose of raising funds for the project and disseminating the knowledge we gain to the world for free. Knowledge should be free. There may come a time when I will no longer need help but for now I ask for your help. I ask that you give something of your time and your talents, and yes, even your money, if you are able; to help me make a difference in the world. Together we can make the whole world a better place to live.
