Waiting in Hope by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

As soon as I seen him, he touched my heart. He was just sitting there singing, it was almost like he was waiting for something, something more then some lose change or a dollar. In his eyes I saw something, perhaps like hope; maybe others sees him like hopeless, however, I just saw a man waiting in hope.
