The Children Eating Grass

Often wondering is it a steak upon Our Plates that is important...
Perhaps a Hot-dog instead and more Money for a healing deportment.
To feed a Child that is suffering or very ill and extremely sick.
We ask often comfortably what often makes the wealthy tick?
As We read on The Internet that there are Children out there just wanting Bread.
The Children eating grass is in an Article that was just as this is read...
My Heart torn open,wrenched,concerned and burning with anguish inside.
My Own Home stemless, poor, and uncomfortably We reside...
Wishing We could just reach threw a T.V. Set to give a helping hand...
Just to pass Our Dinner to a child in a taunted hemmed Land. 
My passion so large, words so strong, and My Pocket very small.
Never standing in the right position in Life to answer as Children call.
There are Children in Our World that are just eating grass.
Under seemly so by My feelings of disrepair as I pass My Own grasp...
This stench of Many Self willed that preform as Our stanza has not surpassed.  
To reach for You now is more then an unbearable weep to comprehend.
A World filling up with Starvation and Our Children in it left to descend.
To reach for You now is an unbearable decision not yet made.
The Children Eating Grass just wore Me thin and They paid.
Sometime wishing I could just rob and empty an entire vault.
That Decision would cost Me greatly so I resort to prayer that will never fault. 
To Be trusted with just This Message where I sit and grieve.
When Encounters of Love yet to occur and never to beckon Evil that is deceived.

This truly touched me and filled me with sadness. An incredible poem. My favorite lines: "There are Children in Our World that are just eating grass. Under seemly so by My feelings of disrepair as I pass My Own gas... This stench of Many Self willed that preform as Our stanza has not grasped." - Also, thank you so much for the encouraging comment. It made my day. :) Always, Laura

I just didn't know How to Express that passage Any better;When I read that line to My Cousin She was rolling laughing until She Heard the rest of it Then She felt remorseful too...Especially when I told Her it was based on A True Story...I mean gas really stinks and I couldn't think of Anything worse to Describe and compare selfishness to...We live on a fixed income and are very much berried by Medical Bills.When I saw these facts on the internet...I realized We truly do have it made.To feel starvation as a small Child has to be the worse feeling in The Entire World.The Adults to these Children must be absolutely Heart wrenched.It is sad;really.really,sad.Thank You for Your heart felt Comment...I hope this Poem gets shared with Many...Love-Char
