Treasure Island

Hunger


people are dying
looking for food
having no money
no food
families are struggling
to keep their babies safe

parents dying
the eldest child
has to take care of
younger brothers and sisters
getting whatever type of
food to their sbiliblings
and growing hungyer
because they are giving
up their food for their sbilings

wanting their parents everyday
because they miss them so much

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
