train singer

July 21, 2010

yesterday on the g train, there was an old man singing this song.

almost brought me to tears, cause he was so good.

and i imagine that like many, because he was not beautiful or tall enough or whatever,  he never made it.

but there he was on the train, singing the hell out of tracy’s song.

i wished i could have given him more, but i only had a dollar to spare.

he deserves more for the gift he possesses.

made my day.
