There is Joy

crouching at the feet
of time and space
not their own,

they know the worst
and the best
of being the street;

there is joy here
when defeat means nothing
but defeat,

some faces do smile,
hands do reach,
souls shake out stories
that have no name
in shame;

strangers are brothers
when they share
the same air;

from bare pools
they plunge into
themselves,

humming as a source
of breathing;
they sing songs of home,

and becoming human once more,
grab another small triumph
in daily living.
