Hunger Pains by Aaron R.
In a world where we are concerned about the economy and marketing numbers
How can we have people starving and dealing with hunger?
We’re too far developed as a nation to be faced with this situation
So we have a plan and 2030 is our destination
I’m not talking about decreasing, I’m talking about elimination
So nobody is starving or walking around hungry in any nation
Speaking of our nation, it’s strange to me
That in this land of plenty there’s still people on the streets without food to eat
We pay millions of dollars for entertainment but that’s another topic
People who are out here starving, we need to stop it
We have money for wars
We should be at war with not feeding the poor, this is something we shouldn’t ignore
Family’s walking around with their stomach’s growling and sore
We as the people owe it to each other to do more
So let’s depend on each other and help one another
To stop world hunger the world is going to need each other
So my challenge to you and my challenge to me
Do something small or large independently
Together Everyone Achieves More If we can unite as a team – world hunger can be no more
That sounds like a plan that’s worth it to me
So let’s embark on our journey and do little day by day until 2030
Judges’ Comments – This poem oozes hope and does so with music and rhythm that enraptures and inspires. This poem does not equivocate. “People who are out here starving, we need to stop it.” I imagine this poem standing in front of the world’s crowd with a megaphone in hand -- a true call to action!
