Hungry


'I'm so hungry, mommy! '
But there is no food
Will this little kid die?
Just because of hunger?

But...
There is enough food!
But only for the rich ones

Will my son and my husband
Wake up tomorrow?
Or will they die?
Just because of hunger?

But...
There is enough food!
But only for the corrupt regime

Will I be able to get some food for my family?
Tommorow and any other day?
Or will they all die?
Just because of hunger?

But...
There is enough food!
But the help doesn't arrive where the people need it

These horrible pangs of hunger
Will it ever end?
