Homeless / I Need Love

It was a homeless man in Hollywood who got me thinking.

We’d just flown in from San Francisco; we’d been flying

And driving for weeks. This day I saw a homeless man on

The street in Hollywood. I felt the usual mix of sorrow for him,

And anger at a society that makes a man live like this.

Later on I thought about it more, he affected me differently.

He really looked together, really organised. He was a survivor.

I’m sure his life is really tough, but I felt a deep sense of

Respect for him, much more than pity. Then I asked myself,

Why did I react this way. It struck me, that here in this crazy

World, there was a man, who drives no car, who flies no plane,

Who heats no home; in a time of global warming his CO2 Emissions are pretty much zero. This homeless man in Hollywood is a model urban citizen.

I on the other hand, I live this life of good intentions,

I travel the world, I try to be aware of the earth, I sing my songs,

I look and hope for change. But out on the road, I fly everyday,

I drive everyday, I heat my home, and burn up so much fuel

That if everyone lived like me, we’d need about 4 planets

Just to keep it all going…………………….. Shit!

Funny how a homeless man in Hollywood got me thinking….

Men like him just walk the walk, and men like me………..

Well, we talk a good talk….

It was a homeless man in Hollywood…


[ „Homeless“, Luka Bloom – Taken from the album „Tribe“]

It may seem that these two songs and their content are miles away from each other, but having taken a closer look, you will discover that „All you need is love“. If you don’t love yourself, you won’t really live at all. And you won’t respect People & Nature.

Give yourself and your heart a home!

I’m looking forward su much to seeing Luka playing LIVE in Hamburg @ Fabrik at the end of September. Pedal on…!
