ever been homeless?

Recommended Posts

i was just wondering if anyone here has ever been homeless, whether by choice, or because of circumstance. im just curious about what your experiences were and things.

home is where the heart is, and i don't consider my house my home.

 

my home is on 60th & park.

I met a homeless guy the other day, he hopped trains, he knew a lot about trains, and with the knowledge on here and regular experience I talked to the guy about transit, he was cool, smart as hell, but was sad was this guy had kids who were 30 that wouldnt even take care of him, and just left him on his own when he was down...shit is was just wrong, So I gave him some cash and we raided this coffee house that was giving away these free doughnuts because some bands were playing their that sucked so we stole their food left and said bye to the guy..

i ran away for two weeks when i was about 15. stayed under a bridge the first two nights, stayed at a friends apartment and another friends house, on the beach, and under a pier in a sandpit thing one night. i stole my food, and spanged money for cigarettes, weed, and bus fairs. i borrowed clothes and stole little things like socks, boxers, and boots. i was going to see how long i could take it, but my parents caught me when i came home to take a shower one day...not neccesarely a homeless experience, but close enough at the age of 15.

i was homeless sorta...more rebelling from my parents i guess.shit was going bad for me so they tried to send me to military school...i ran away and slept on the streets for 2 weeks and then another week on my friends couch.i was 14 at the time and was scared shitless.i got beat up and jacked for what little i had.it fucking sucked...and to think people live homeless most of there life sometimes.sometimes by choice,sometimes not.i could handle it better now though if the situation ever came up.

my parents tossed my ass out of the house when i was like 14 or something, some bullshit about showing me the real world. that was the most fun 4 days of my life, well it started to suck after a while, sleeping on rooftops aint that cool. i just went downtown and tagged stuff.

I knew this chick who used to get beat up by her dad. And she always got into fights with her step mum. One day she just left. This was about 3 years ago. I saw her a couple months back, hanging out with these homeless crack heads. Apparantly she sucks dick for money.....

 

So the answer to you question is no......

Sort Of.

 

Yeah, I have lived out-of-doors for extended periods of time, but I never considered myself to be homeless. "Home" is wherever I happen to be at any given moment, and this was especially true when I was single. Being "homeless" is a state of mind. A good example is these guys that play on the idea that they are "down and out and need a hand up." The people I met when I was tramping 24/7 didn't want a hand up, they wanted some of all those square's cash so they could go buy some more booze and dope. I have to work pretty hard at not judging them for being lazy-ass mooches, especially when I see people that are paraplegics, people that are blind or deaf and people that are cerebral palsy survivors out there MAKING A DECENT LIVING for themselves. I see the same guys on the same street corner day-after-day. I have one acquaintance who has lived under the same bridge for THREE YEARS. Gimme a fuckin break. I like the guy, but I don't respect him. In three years he could have ridden every train in North America twice.

 

There's a big difference between being "homeless" through no fault of your own (I knew a secretary who came down with Hepatitis-C and lost everything she owned--her landlord seized all her possessions while she was in the hospital) and people that basically are "bums" (they mooch handouts and money) and "tramps." I was a tramp. I worked, and I took care of my own business, with the significant exception that I had a friend who basically was defrauding the Welfare people out of food stamps, for part of that time. But most of the time, I worked and supported myself, but chose to live the tramp life.
