Hunger, the true virus

At times I wish, hunger hits hard
On the rich too, so they understand
And feel the cruel pains, of lost souls
Who before turning ghost had no home.

At times, I wonder why the world is bias
Behaving like everyone inhale special gas
Whereas we are all one and the same
Living on earth, with various prides and shames.

Upon hearing pandemic, we all turn cold
Terrified that curtains will abruptly close
Whereas daily people untimely kick buckets
All because they run on empty stomachs.

    This is so true and so important. I am so thankful you thought to bring this up and to write about it. Thank you. Everyone should go on one mission trip in their lifetime, hopefully more and see these little humans starving to death. That makes it real. It is so strange stopping in Miami where the wealth is in your face and then traveling that short distance to Haiti. Thanks again for this. Love Joni
