When I give voice to my thoughts by writing them down, I achieve some clarity.

But at times I am disappointed that I think so little of mankind. For the past few days I have been praying harder, because I know that I need God more now than ever.

Yesterday morning I woke up more hopeful, that my break is coming. But I am saddened that others are still struggling.

We need voices, people that the world acknowledges as being part of society. We need people to take a stand and hold our city leaders accountable. We need voices to advocate for us, and here I am talking about the single male that is experiencing homelessness.

I have been doing a lot of reading on affordable housing and honestly it’s all centered around families or single women with children. But what about me, I am over looked?

They don’t see a single male trying to get stable housing, who’s self worth is questioned every day in his own mind.

Just because he doesn’t see a future that he belongs in. Where his dignity and pride is being systematically stripped away by poverty, undercover racism and being over looked in conversations about housing.

So as a homeless man, I need a voice of someone that will be heard.

Someone that sees me as a human being.

Will you be that voice?

Let the love of God guide you and I guarantee you he will give you words and ways to make a change.

Be the voice that God has placed in your heart, the voice for the child of God that can’t be heard on his own.
