LIVING A WISH



Can't empty bowls be filled with rice each day? Whatever ever age, gender, color, or creed That mankind’s dire hunger be swept away, Not by crumbs when fields a luscious deed. While harvest of earth is bounty, divine Billions of souls wither from deprived fruits . How to allay poverty though fresh is life’s wine And nature’s gift endows us with plump roots? Meadows yield enough crops through sun or rain And river beds swim with fish of seasons Providing decent meals from nourished grain. Then why this famish for selfish reasons? I cling to one wish .... this is my prayer: That food NOT be used as monopoly, But a blessing, God’s gift equal and fair... And share this cause... wipe off trade’s gluttony! If I could change the world Contest For Becca Teagan 7/28/2016 --------------- * The United Nations estimates that about 795 million people of the 7.3 billion people in the world, or one in nine, were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2014-2016. *It is believed that a principal underlying cause of poverty and hunger is the operation of economic systems in the world that resources end up in the hands of a minority.

    When just a few thousand persons have got the 90% of world's wealth these things will always happen! Great writing that shows concern for others! Wonderfully done dear, nette! A seven!

    Hi Nette I am with you all the way on this gem of a poem, There is no need for anyone to suffer on his planet Food there is for everyone, I hate the attitude in the human race, that lets so many people die in misery. Wonderful poem, my friend....Peter

    Again, scraping my heart, making me realize what I need to see. The poor, the forgotten---they are everywhere, yet do we care? We must! Astounding poem that calls for action.

    I once read that there is enough food in production to feed 12 billion people....So I deeply appreciated your poem. Yes, " while harvest of earth is bounty, divine, Billions of souls either from deprived fruits..." Nothing wrong with the earths ability to feed everyone- it is only the greedy ones who abuse the right to use it..Best wishes for the contest! Big Hug!

    Ah, greed again rears his ugly head. Just the scraps from our dinner tables alone could feed all of the hungry right here in the US. A wonderful informative and well written poem, Nette. The beauty of your heart is on display!

    The second remark, dear Nette, is the truth. I often had to attend the meetings of World Help at the FAO (Food Agriculture Organization) in Rome. Always felt disgusted. They never took things seriously.
