I AM HUNGRY WHAT CAN I HAVE?
I am Hungry what can I have?
What can I have There’s nothing good to eat?
What can I have I’m looking for a treat?
There are brownies on the counter
Fresh fruit is in the bowl
Cut fruit is in the fridge
Yet I feel like a lost soul.
The freezer’s full of choices
Ribs , steak and chicken too
The cupboards full of Pasta
Oh what am I to do?
My mom would yell, “You ingrate.”
“You have more than enough to eat.
Think of those who are starving
Who can’t stand on their feet.”
I guess she made a good point
But it doesn’t help a bit
I’m looking for something special
Until I find it, I won't quit.
She’d say, “Stop searching for your dog’s load
When you can always go get more
Get up and feed the starving
Who can’t go to the store”.
I guess I’m not really hungry
The memory of her words causes shame
I’ll start cooking that food for the hungry
For the helpless, the sick and the lame.
Not everyone has a full larder
Some live in the park night and day
Some carry their lives in a suitcase
And just for a good meal they pray
God forgive me for being so greedy
For thinking I didn’t have enough
I pray that you bless all those in need
For them the goings still rough.
