So Many Have Nothing, When Others Have Everything


So Many Have Nothing, When Others Have Everything

Can you imagine not having anything to eat or drink?

Is this a concept that makes you stop for a second to think

With no money to spend because you do not have a job

You feel like a lonely stranger, an outcast, and a slob

How does the world look at you when you don’t have a thing?

Wishing deep inside that someone would have the heart to bring

Your poor and weary body that’s digging for anything it can find

To survive another day in this cruel world that will rob us blind

Millions struggle every day just to make a dollar they can use

Others live without essential items such as water that we abuse

Then some of us just barely afford what we have obtained

While a minority holds wealth and possessions that they’ve gained

How can we feed the millions that are starving to death each day?

What can we do about the water shortage that kills life in someway?

Can we search inside our greedy hearts and kindly give a little cash?

Were not as poor as we may think so make the effort to start a stash

Were luckier than most because many of us can take a shower?

Watch TV, feed our families and even have electrical power

Why can’t we be thankful for all these things that we often cherish

Some struggle to even breathe clean air and will eventually perish

We could live on less if we trust God and let Him work in our heart

We could be the difference for somebody to have a brand new start

So think about all the things that you take for granted everyday

Because there are families out there who would love to live this way

If you see a struggling mother try to make it on one check to survive

Or walk across a homeless man trying to make a dollar to stay alive

Then stop to tell them God loves them and He will provide a way

Lend a helping hand and offer a small portion on what you can today

Worthless commented on So Many Have Nothing, When Others Have Everything


Nice job, been thinking the same way.. I'll send you a private message. But anyways no matter how bad off I am, I always think of the others who don't even have a car to live in or the one special friend that no matter what will always help..

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
