Hey … Why Do We? - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore
Why do we multiply our possessions
and reduce our values?
Why do we love little
and hate too often?
We have learned to make a living,
but not a life.
Is it true my friend
that we have added years to life
but not life to years?
WHY DO WE BUY MORE
BUT ENJOY LESS?
I gave two plantains to a poor woman
on the street begging.
She took them with a great smile.
There was light in her eyes, I saw;
Shared TWO plantains with her FOUR children.
with tearful eyes,
wiped the face of her children
It was the smile of God.
