Do You Have One?


All of us have rants inside of us.  There are times you have to let them out or explode.  There are so many wrong things in our world, but then again there are good things also.  The poor and hungry child may have experienced a good thing because some nice person gave them a candy bar or it could be as simple as a loving touch from their mother.

I am sharing a poem I wrote about hunger. Let me know what your thinking after you read it.

Do we really know

We think we know

Hunger is a strong need for food

I might have an idea as most

Based on not eating when I want

Do we really know

How it feels to be empty

Not knowing when the next bite will be

Do we feel the knowing cramping

The rising nausea

Do we really know

Why thousands starve

As we watch our favorite sport team

While mothers listens to their children cry

Begging for just something to stop the pain

Priorities are amuck in this world

Why should pay millions to play, to sing, to act

As a people we are no better than the Romans’

Gladiator sports for our satisfaction

Let’s watch and cheer while the lions eat.

The video today is on stopping hunger.

About shirleymclain930

I'm a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I liked adventure and travel and making friends. I have 6 dogs and 1 cat. They are like having a house full of three years olds. Now for the rest of the story. My Granddaughter and her husband now live with us and they have 4 dogs and 4 cats along with a giant Flemish Rabbit. My Granddaughter has now added beautiful, Olivia to our household. My fourth Great Grandchild. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.

    I couldn’t have worded it any better than this: I feel the same way about how our current society is structured. There are millions starving – all over the world – but it’s OK because Jersey Shore is still on Thursday and my favorite football team is in the Super bowl this year. I would highly suggest to check out the Zeitgeist Movement/Venus Project for practical solutions to our worldly problems. Great post and I look forward to sharing more with you:))
