Spare A Thought

I’ve been thinking lately,

How this world’s so crazy,

Homeless outnumber the lazy,

Love in life is just a maybe.

.

Our oceans may be melting,

Bloodied lips continue pouting,

Social media is for flouting,

Metal shells continue pelting.

.

Our economies are falling,

The children were always crawling,

Malnutritions and sprawling,

Their tears were once falling.

.

Naked and afraid they try,

Unable to pray to the sky,

Never allowed to ask why.

From birth they hope to die.

.

The world hidden from their sight,

At his will and through his might,

Too afraid not to fight,

Too scared to run from their plight.

.

Could you spare a thought for them,

Living in the shadow of great men,

Abused through a life of phlegm,

The silently condemned.

.
