The Tears Of The Poor Are Too Hot. - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

The tears of the poor
are too hot.
It will burn your face.
It will burn your hands.
It will burn your hearts.

If a day passes
without helping the poor
and the needy
and the rejected
and the discarded,
that day is lost forever.

Topic(s) of this poem: poverty, suffering, tears

    The tears of the poor
    are too hot.
    It will burn your face.
    It will burn your hands.
    It will burn your hearts.........so touching and true. A great philosophical poem on poverty and suffering having a question on humanity to the society.10

    A very well expressed sense of a true humanitarian. A good poem that can bring social reformation and awareness if taken seriously. Thanks for sharing, Sir. (Report) Reply

    2) Each day that passes increases their poverty until death takes them to a better place to live in the luxury of Heaven forever. Tony, this poem raises our awareness of how some of the most loving, gentle and kind souls live, Both the agonising words of your finely inked poem and the graphic are haunting. Thank you for sharing them with me today and for showing us a picture from life`s other side to raise our awareness, lest we forget... (Report) Reply

    The very emotionally moving poem which tugged at my heartstrings as I read. The tears of the poor run like little hot springs down their faces when nobody comes to their rescue to offer help which they so badly need. If we do not help our poor brothers and sisters, who will? (Report) Reply
