IS IT THE CASE

IS IT THE CASE



Is it the case that
Lands are small, to contain all of us, 
Or that
Our hearts are not big enough to love?

Is it the case that
Seas and oceans are narrow for our ships to pass
Or that
Our minds are not wide open?
 
Is it the case that 
Food is scarce the hungry of the world to feed, 
Or that
Greediness of certain men is so great?
 
Is it the case that 
Concern for our fellow human is infrequent 
Or that
Indifference is incessant?

Whatever the answers may be, 
My dear brother, 
My loving sister,  
This question must be 
Answered first:

How HOLY, for someone it is 
His happiness to built
Over 
The unhappiness of 
OTHERS?

    So true...So true. The sad sights we must see on our journey through life.

    This is a great poem with great questions. I don't have answers, but I hope - like the Bible says - that at the end - the meek will inherit the Earth. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    A masterpiece...crafted with careful thought and consideration, culminating in a powerful testimony! My dear highly esteemed poet...this was a lovely write! :) You unmasked those who oppress the weak so well. A better day is coming, when justice will reign. :) Even so, come Lord Jesus!

    And may this Happiness absorb all the unhappiness of the world, just to make one happy place! How I wish it were so my friend, that we all could band together and make a real difference in this world! Many of us are too afraid to go out of our comfort zone to really try to make a difference! But I'm just as much to blame as the next guy! This is a tremendous write my friend! What a delightful piece that you have written here! Great Work!!
