Give me the colored woman
 1
with dark circles under eyes
 2
mud on her feet
 3
clothes damp with sweat
 4
who wears all her possessions
 5
throws her children at strangers
 6
because what is unknown
 7
must be better
 8
than what is
 9
known.

Wow, this is one of the best poems that I read on this site!  It is an explanation why some people choose to be homeless.  The alternative may be too painful or challenging for them.  This poem will resonate with me although the woman can be of any race, ethnic or creed.  I have seen homeless
women of all  races on the streets.
