Not Everybody Has Enough (Cold and Rough) is one song in a Homeless Trilogy I have written.  
I'm very aware that but for the grace of God, I could be walking in those homeless shoes.  And the truth is, most of us are no further than one serious illness or the loss of a job,  from being homeless ourselves.
When I was a teenager, I used to play the organ at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Oak Ridge.  My favorite hymn they sang was the one that quoted Jesus:  "As you do unto the least of my brothers, so you do unto me."
I always give money to the folks who stand on the road at intersections with signs that say they need money.  I don't care what they spend it on.  I believe that anyone who stands out on the road and begs, REALLY  needs help.   And one day, it's likely I'll need help.  Eventually, most of us do.  Just as eventually, we all need to be forgiven.  

Lyrics

Not Everybody Has Enough (Cold and Rough)
 
The days are short, the nights are cold
He's got a box that he calls home
Hot coffee in a paper cup
He gives her half to warm her up
Not everybody has enough
Sometimes the streets feel cold and rough
 
She's got a pack of cigarettes
He's got a light and she's his guest
She takes the crate, he sits on the ground
Alone they're lost, together found
Not everybody has enough
Sometimes the streets are cold and rough
 
Sometimes the streets are cold and rough
When friends are scarce and so is love
But she's an angel in disguise
And he's a boy who really tried
Just never seemed to get things right
 
Repeat first stanza
 
Not everybody has enough
Sometimes the streets feel cold and rough
