Ms Wesley An Original Song

Ms Wesley is a video I recorded on December 20, 2019. It is a true song about a homeless woman I met several years ago.

I was hanging out with a friend at a fast food restaurant when an older woman came up to us. We bought her a meal and she told us the story of how she became homeless.

The woman said she once had a rich husband and used to live in a mansion with servants that would wait at her feet. But as luck would have it, her husband died and she became destitute and poor and was forced to live on the street.

It was such an amazing story that I remembered it several years later and documented it in a song. I may have changed the woman's name to protect her identity.

What you have here is a type of mini story about one person's life. Some of it is real and some of it is imagined, but hopefully parts of the woman's original story still shine through.

Next time you see a homeless person and attempt to pass by them think of this song. You could make a difference to their life and to your life by helping them.

Matthew 5:42 says, "Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away." King James Version (KJV)

Lyrics

Pleased to meet you, my name is Ms. Wesley,
And my home is here on the street.
I once had a rich husband,
And had servants that would wait at my feet.
These days I live by the kindness of others;
A shopping cart and second hand clothes.
If you could spare food or a dollar...
Then maybe you can still save a soul.

Verse 2
I wish I had someone to love me,
Like he loved me once in the past...
And if memories have any value,
Then my mind gives me pictures to last.
My skin feels hard just like leather,
My hands tremble with nothing to hold.
A hole in my sweater elbow
And my lips peel and crack from the cold.

Bridge
It gets cold sleeping on a park bench,
In the winter it's frosty outside,
I walk till my poor feet have blisters,
City buses won't give me a ride.
Looking in trash cans for treasure,
Poking through half eaten food...
Discarded like an old paper wrapper
Life can lead you in paths you can't choose.

Verse 3
Some woman have husbands or children,
They can smile when the world treats them bad.
I'm a woman who stands before you with nothing,
Since dreams are all that I have.
And when sit down at a resturaunt
At a table with so much food to eat,
And you see me pass by the window
Give a thought to folks starving on the street.
