I use to be homeless, it's a part of my life, past, that helps shape my current thoughts and prospectives on many things.
And as such, would like to share a few of the things I went through and saw.
I tend to write more like a painter though...a abstract painter.
I give you the colors, and allow you to interpit as you see fit.
Yes, I tend to write the way a abstract painter or artist throws paint at a canvess...kind of like chaotic order...
Get the emotions out first...then let the colors fall and droop where they may.
So anyways...if you've ever been homeless before...maybe you'll be able to relate to a few things I share...and if you never been homeless...read on and learn.
No two peoples homeless experience will ever be the same.
And there's a variety of reasons why induvisuals or families, end up homeless.
Some by choice, others do to bad circumstances...
My experience being homeless was a bit unique, in that I kind of choose to live that way for a while, partly as an experiment, and partly cause I got tired of being burdened with the things you're burdened with when 'in the system'.
I wanted to live free for a while. And believe it or not, some of the best days of my life, recent life, came when I was 'free' or homeless.
I had nothing, but felt like I owned the world, homeless with a purpose is the closest you'll ever come to feeling like the wild animals you see...who are able to cross barriers, and enjoy the earth, the planet, without always having to pay someone to do so.
And with that let's begin this backwards journey into some of the times I lived, things I experienced, while homeless...and like I mentioned earlier...my writing can be some what unstructured and abstract at times...1st person, 2nd person and even 3rd person.
And sometimes even you.
But one thing for sure, it's all real and genuine...and feel I must share...for my own sake first...and for others sake second...lets begin...
