The Change Collectors | Chifundo 

This is for you,

The one that walks past us ignoring our calls

The one that looks at us in the eyes just to show off empty hands         

Even you, the one that rolls up the window after seeing us.

You see, we need the leftovers
the discounts off your purchases
the piggy bank coins

For we are the change collectors

So, we ask you
Would you rather save for an occasion that may never come or invest in a life that’s here now?

We are change collectors because our demand is for your change

Some of you say we already have homes and families 

Some of you say you don’t have change

Some of you say giving us change won’t solve the problem
So you pray for us
Some of you say we’re just going to use it for drugs
So you give us food and clothes

 Some of you simply just shake your heads

We are the change collectors because we want our world to change

We need homes
We need comfort 
We need friends and family
We need education 

We need you to teach us how to speak your language
We need to get through the day, and the next

We are the change collectors because we want the world to change
