Forlorn Hope

He's a scared, shivering, sad and lonely soul, today's version of a disposable man. Panhandling on cold city streets takes its toll, and he's devolved into a human trash can. Ostracized, he's stripped of any chance he had of finding love or of becoming a dad. And yet, his heart still harbors the forlorn hope that someday fate might yet change his horoscope.
