Poem by Freeyad Ibrahim
It is well to give when asked
But it is better to give unasked.
Some give and take a picture with the needy,
when they give unasked.
But it is better to give them when masked
Some give full in an uncovered basket
But it is better to give the with a covered basket
Some do not give because they fear poverty
or maybe they feel irresponsible
Some give because they do not fear
and find it well charitable
I ask those who fear and feel it unquestionable:
Is not dread of thirst when your well is full
The thirst that is unquenchable? !
