Before You Whine


Before You Cry
Remember At This Moment Someone Is About To Die
From Poverty, And Food Is Not Appearing To Their Eyes
Before You Complain And Whine
Remember For Others The Sun Is Not There To Shine
You Stress About Some Things
They Stress About Everything
No Food, No Clothes, And Not Much To Gain
With Nothing Promise But Some Hope For Rain
Your Little Problems Are Nothing Compared To Their Pain
Before You Whine, Please Think Again
You Are Sheltered, Fed, So You Are Blessed
For Them Each Day They Face This Painful Test
You Wake Up Every Morning To Shine And Grind
They Wake Up Hungry With Stress On Their Mind
You Complain About The Things You Have
But Forgot To Complain On Their Behalf
Your Life Is Something That They Wish Upon
Be Thankful That You Don't Drink From Dirty Ponds!

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
