Comments about Elizabeth Padillo Olesen
Between The Rich And The Poor
Who draws the gap between people?
They call them rich, they call them poor
The rich squander in wealth and abundance
The poor wonder what to eat next time.
Who allows injustice as iron fists
Smashing down the humble dignity
Of the weak, elevating the powerful
To decide what for the poor is best?
Who wakes up in the middle of the night
Feeling the grumbling hungry tummy
Over an open roof and empty plates?
Who orders trips to paradise during holidays
Hoarding bank shares and silver and gold?
L= is for life to be lived, developed and protected.
O= is order in creation of giving, receiving and
V= is a vine of network for the life to live and survive.
E= is for eternity that measures time in terms
of hope and longing in the heart.
