The wheels of time

The Wheels of Time


I wasn’t always in a wheelchair. I’ve been out here since I was a teenager. I was schooling till our family fell apart, so I ended up in the streets and I’ve been out here ever since — for forty years. It’s hard when you don’t know where to find help. I’m just out here being the best I can, begging for money so I can eat everyday. I’m just living a life as a homeless man, but I’m not mad at anybody. I wish I could be home with a wife. I wish I were rich. I wish I were super rich! — Butch, Cleveland.
