Hunger They Feel - Poem by Eric Cockrell

i cannot and will not stand
to watch any living being go hungry...
whether it be homeless people,

street bums, addicts, or small children...
and even dogs and cats abandoned
by their 'owners'....

the hunger they feel
is a part of me...
drives me like a harsh wind...

morsels of food, whatever i've got...
come sit by the fire....
we are one!

    We should look serious on this, as we may live well and got wasting resources because it easy to have..should not forget to whom suffering and in needs..they know the real value of things more than people who get it without facing this or get all stuff easily...i tried imagine if i be one of them, homeless and nowhere to go and no food to eat, it's terrible...so i feel it's right for Eric to say and remind us about this, why dont we help, we are born in different physical womb but we born by same hand of Creator and deliver by the same hand..so we must have more love and help each other..what a important poem you share here_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
