Is It Your Obligation? - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore
You fixate on buying something new.
You are among the fortunate select few.
Do you think that it is your obligation?
Possessing because you live in an affluent nation.
Within the perimeter of this sphere we call home.
Children are starving and many fearfully moan.
The discrepancy between having and desperation…
Is affected by luck and location… upon investigation.
Would it be possible to share a little of your wealth?
With those who are less privileged and in poor health.
Rewards of sharing can be satisfying and treasured…
Accomplishments in life are not always self-pleasured.
