Prompt ~ SOFA SURFING

SOFA SURFING


by John Yeo

Sofa surfing isn’t connected to exploring the internet,

It’s a step away from a night on a cold stone pavement,

A friendly gesture that will always be hard to forget.

~

A circle of good friends will always be a valuable asset

When homelessness begins to make a slow descent

Sofa surfing isn’t connected to exploring the internet.

~

A harsh alternative to hope can be a powerful threat

Life’s troubles and despair arrive without relent

A friendly gesture will always be hard to forget.

~

To help a friend in need is something never to regret

Just an even break will help towards a hard ascent

Sofa surfing isn’t connected to exploring the internet.

~

A friendly sofa can go forward and adjust the mindset

Bringing hope of an end to the need to beg for consent

A friendly gesture will always be hard to forget.

~

Friendship and help bring hope for a life to reset

The slide into homelessness can be hard to prevent,

Sofa surfing isn’t connected to exploring the internet

A friendly gesture will always be hard to forget.
