! ## Mute Hunger

Rating: 3.2
An ache perforates veins deep
Blood cold as moods of night
tears fall on food I eat
tears fall on food withered
Filled platters, piled up trash bins
Plastic flash cards' redeemed poise
Classy high end festive foyers
Dim lit reckless long end revelry
Minds relaxed on refined comforts
jaded dried leaves spread apart
life shriveled, cry for food

Wastage of food is against all moralities, religion also condemn if we disrespect food, Good you have taken up this cause to invoke awareness, I hope this reaches far and wide and the poor souls handcuffed with hunger are relieved… Abha

This is something that those of us in the west are familiar with. We have been aware of this for some time and we actually do have some voluntary programs to this effect. It is no where near enough. As for your poem. I would rather your poem be a bit more clear in its wording. A poem with a purpose like this one, can't afford to be misunderstood. GW62
