A ---young ---man, --HOLDING-- up --a ---CARD-BOARD--SIGN
and -it -read,- am -out -of -WORK- and- HUNGRY-- and --NEED--- a ----HELPING---HAND, ----as --cars --SPEED--and--PASS --him --by--they --are --thinking --is -HE-----TELLING-----the ------TRUTH, ------or ----IS-----HE-----LYING

You --know, --a --person,-- , just --really-- never ---CAN -TELL
if --a --person-- is --TELLING ----the ---TRUTH--, or ---LYING-- and --DECIEVING-- others --so --WELL

Well, -as -i -always- say -to --MYSELF, --just -really- how -do -i ---even---KNOW
and -when -i --CAN, --always-- i -do -my ---BEST--ANYWAY--, to --HELP
another-- the--BEST---that--i ---can --SO

For -a -person, -on -the ---STREET--CORNER--- with --a --rough--cardboard ---SIGN
no ---matter---- what,--- the ---situation ---on ---hand, ---they --are --not --just --ALRIGHT---GOOD --and----FINE

Sure -its--very---easy---for--a --person --to---SAY
why -help -and -enable -a -person, -on-the-street-corner-with --addictions --maybe --of --drug --alcohol, --or --gambling --in --any --a --WAY

But for ME, i think and i --PRAY
that, --the --LITTLE--BIT-- that --i--GIVE-----------can----------BE---a---BLESSING---for --them----and---HELP---them----in----EVERY--FAITHFUL--GREAT--LOVING--WAY
