My dear boy, never waste food
said the Dad; no way it's good;
Do you know there are thousands
of people in surroundings
who can't afford to have lunch
or some crispy food to munch.
Take only that much in plate
that you can eat; why to prate?
And when you help a needy
with food, must do it freely,
with no expectation, cause
you haven’t done great job; just pause
thank him to allow to take
part to serve; must stay awake
who knows HE is taking food
in disguise, never be rude.
Saint Teresa said, one who
assists someone with smile to
support is the best giver,
cause God loves cheerful giver.
The blessing you get from HIM
fills you with love above brim;
That's the reward for lifetime,
you've helped as per HIS design.
