Humble - Poem by Eddi Hong

Meds became mad
People need someone sane
No they do not want to be saved
Instead, they lie to each other face
Protecting what is value for themselves

A single child is crying
No one care to help him from suffering
They keep busying
Posting every luxury living

While homeless need no majesty
only craving for someone to talk
side by side
with no lie

And while we aging
In future we regretting
For what have we been doing
We should just be thankful for everything

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There was a dark side from this writing.
Though I wanted to pour it into more lyrical, I hope people build more empathy for they surroundings.
Excuse me, if you feel these words not getting the point.

    Posting every luxury living.. i got the sense that you are describing the modern life and the life of the suffering of the neglected child while the parents are pursuing their own luxuries......... i do not know whether i am write.

    That is why less people realize, empathy and sympathy is like a false while they acknowledge love.
    Thank you Raavi.
