HANK is everywhere, you will see him if you look

Homeless Hank is a character that represents...

A single mother making min wage who loses the struggle to afford rent, childcare, transportation and food

A family whose father suffers a debilitating illness and is unable to work

A man who suffers from mental illness without the resources for treatment

A child who ages out of the foster care system at age 18

A family with children living paycheck to paycheck when the someone is laid off

A young man caught in a web of drug and alcohol addictions

A woman escaping an abusive relationship with nothing but the clothes on her back

A man who because he is homeless without an address, phone number, clean clothes, a place to shower and food can’t not secure gainful employment despite having needed skills

A elderly couple living on a fixed income facing rising rents, insurance, and medication costs

A family living in their car because the apartment they struggled to afford has been converted to condos; the parents terrified they will lose their children

This is what you get

Walking circles gets you the beginning again.
Answering yourself gets you no more insight
No mirrors gets you no reality

A smile gets you hope
A hand gets a path
A sigh gets you a moment

It makes no difference in judgement if you acknowledge or just pass on by...not to you maybe...but it does to someone

Delusional protection
Inside surface
Unbelievable gullibility
Profound expression
Reality dungeons

You do not know me and have no idea who I am.
Leave me alone now and forever
There is no poetry in CRAZY

My guardian angel smokes a pipe

It makes me smile when I think of an angel smoking a pipe, others would most likely think of it as odd. It is one of life’s ironic gifts that has been bestowed upon me. I will look to my angel for guidance for this is the only one I have.

No other angel will compare and I was destined for this one, no matter if the advice is laced with wisdom or truths you wish not to hear.

You wouldn't expect to find wings on a scruffy man, with full beard, long hair, glasses and a pipe. He could pass for the stereotypical homeless man; a man that does not shave, seldom clean, and starts his day with a dose of alcohol of his choice. Not so much the angel type but the peace of having any angel brings such comfort when life just does not make much sense.

He always has a sense of humor even when he is sad. Will always give when he has nothing for himself. He is always true to who he is, even if that happens not to fit into a society to well.

So, my guardian angel smokes a pipe, wears blue jeans, drinks too much and does not smell all that great either; but I am happy he is mine.

It sums up how my life goes, gives me more of an understanding of where I am and where I have been. It resembles the holes I have dug, jumped into and had to climb out of, on my own.

One of those moments of clarity, the advice of my angel “You can do anything you put your mind to” rings true inside of me and allows me to go on with a little more strength each day.
