Poems - Hunger

by wolfinwindow

Some do not know from when or where
their next meal is coming today
or if they will die this time of hunger,
while others throw food away.
This happens down in Africa,
the children are starving there,
while we scrape food off our plates,
and do not give a care.
We cannot send the food we waste,
but we can send excess.
It takes a month to get there,
there is no fast express.

the truth about this poem is it also happens right here in America. While we go to bed with our stomachs full there are many poor and homeless here who have gone too long without a meal and have to watch their children cry themselves to sleep. good poem.

    I wrote this for my good and steady friend who lives in Tamali, Ghana,Africa. He goes days without food and still goes to school. School is very important to him. Thank you for you comment zbird.

It Hard To Know
The Hard Hardship
That Some People Bare
But It’s Good to Know
That Some People Care
