Indignant Beggar

While walking around on break today, I put three pennies in a beggar's empty cup. He threw the pennies at my back then swore at me. I told him that at least I gave him something, but he kept swearing at me.

I feel sympathy for his plight. Nonetheless, if he has too much pride to accept something, no matter how small an amount, then build up from it, I wonder what kind of hope me or anyone else can have for him.

Not having a steady job of my own, it's not like I have the kind of security to have the same kind of pride and start handing out whatever I've got.
