Everythings Affected - Poem by Linda Winchell

Everythings affected, affected in everyway.
A Nation filled with, 'Got to Have Folks',
Now, WE all have too pay!

People starving, unemployment rising, gas prices out of sight!
Everyone seems to have their needs, from little girls who walk the night.

It comes from ones shameful pride, lusts and greed.
We all have in our power, what the world really needs.

To embrace one another, give a hand to the poor,
Is this too much to ask?
Or are their cries not heard anymore?

Everythings affected, affected in everyway,
So go about your life my friend,
Walking blinded through your day.

For if we don't take a stand to help,
You may become one of them yourself.
Someone who's life needs and fears,
Have been placed upon a shelf,
And no one seems to care.

    True insight into the dehumanizing of our world. Perhaps when you have a moment you would appreciate my poem Dear Rachel? (Report) Reply
