A Desperate Cry

God's creation
Blessed to be born in this world
We all may feel that's the truth
Until I read this-
An abandoned baby
Malnourished, hardly an year old
Famine struck
Skin and bone
No food to feed
No water to have
Stranded alone in barren land
Helpless eyes staring straight
Standing legs more like a bamboo stick
Cerebral neurons popping out
Veins struggling to carry weak blood
Oh God! Nothing more I can add…
My heart is not strong enough
To read the rest-
A vampire vulture
Sitting beside and
Looking eager to end its hunger!
I pray! Save these innocents!
Let this never happen again!

    When I stumble upon stories like this, my eyes glaze over and I'll sometimes even use a mindless TV show to push the image out of my heart. Such stories leave me feeling impotent and in despair. What I have found to help me is to follow the example of 'The Good Samaritan.' As I interpret it, God is asking us to simply be open to the injustice and misery we see in our own path, that is enough. Addressing the misery of the world only leads me to paralysis. I believe God is encouraging us here to leave the world's misery to others, to trust that if we address what God puts in our path, we can find some peace in the hope that others are doing the same.

    The danger of this kind of charity is that we can become too emotionally involved and others can become dependent upon us. You will notice that the good samaritan does not in fact take the injured man home with him. Instead he takes the injured man to an inn, and pays the innkeeper to care for him. He even promises to return and reimburse the innkeeper for any overage.

    The other kind of charity is too cool for me personally however, though I understand its value. In this kind of charity you just give money to strangers who promise to address the particular problem, and you have no way to really know what percentage of your gift actually goes toward fixing the problem and what part just goes toward administrative costs. When I give this way I worry that I am a poor steward of God's largesse to me. It does protect one from any emotional involvement, but aren't we enjoined by God to 'Love one another? ' How do you do that without becoming emotionally involved? Just a question, not a judgement.

    And so say all of me...Let this never happen again! why don't Governments put a levy on on everyone to pay a small sum to send food and help en mass...heart rending poem to read I thankyou for this

  • Ozark Mountain Homegrown (9/8/2013 12:28:00 PM)

    Such a sad, moving and emotional poem..It is such a tragedy that in this day and time, so many in this world live in extravagance and excess, while others do not have even the basic necessities to survive, like food, clean water, and shelter...It should not be this way! How so many people and governments can turn a blind eye to this, is beyond my understanding.. Great, great poem
