Shame

Shame! 



The World is so developed!
Who said, and how? 
Have they not heard the feelings   
Of starvation in its heart;  

Lo! The world’s crying,
Through the eyes of hungry mankind
Starving for food and clothes
And dying in our hands; 

Lo! The world’s crying,
Through the eyes of slave children  
Starving for love and compassion 
And dying under our feet; 

Lo! The world’s crying,
Through the eyes of suffering women  
Starving for life and existence 
And dying in our mind; 

Lo! The world’s crying,
Through the eyes of lonely Creator
Starving for peace and harmony   
And dying in our hearts; 

And how the world can prosper
With the corrosion of our values;
And, moreover, how can it exalt us
As we enjoy our selfish riches?
