I was walking to the train station to go studio and i witnessed Jason the man i met crying so i approached him gave a tenner and walked off but he shouted "Hey please come back can we talk?" Even though i was in a rush to go studio i stopped and spoke to him
He told me how no body cares people walk past him and laugh and he was crying .He told me how people give money to others with needles in their arms and dont help him as all he needs is money for his hostel for clothes and and to eat. He spoke to myself for half an hour telling me about his pain and how alone he is.
I asked him why are you homeless he told me his story he is 24 years of age, when he was 18 he had a 3 bedroom house a mortgage a wife a daughter. Tragically his daughter past away from a car accident and he couldnt handle the loss so he started drinking blamed himself for her death he admitted to being an ex drug addict said he would use cocaine and it led him to making mistakes he got into prison and ended up on the streets when his wife left him. He doesnt use drugs he is drug free he told me that seeing people on crack recieving money more than him tempts him to do it so they can at least give him money and help him. Also told myself that other crack users beat him up while he sleeps and steals his money. Unlike crack users jason had a bag with clothes a mobile phone cheap one so i took his number to contact himself
All he wants is enough money to buy clothes to get himself on his feet to be able to smell and look good so he can apply for jobs and rent a hostel till he is where he can be. Jason showed me his talent of rapping with a freestyle and said he has a dream of being a rapper on stage but to do that he needs to get on his feet work and have shelter. I make music too. I want to help jason so im asking you all to please help Jason even if a 1p as lastly jason told me he is sucidal and wants to die. So please i rather save a life then see a young talented man die.i will do all i can
