Fat or thin

Where do I begin
In the western world we eat too much
Grub it is abundant
How often do we hear “I’m on a diet”
And then it’s all redundant
You find the tin
With the cookies in
And before you know it
You have blown it!
Whilst in Africa
The menu is dust
A child walks six miles for water
And a tiny crust
Thankful for a small meal
This is the deal
Dirty water only to drink
Does this make you think
The imbalance of the World it’s very true
Is aparent both to me and you
So whilst you eat your big dinner
Others just grow thinner and thinner
Isn’t it about time it was fair
And all of us who really care
Could see clear to assist the plight
Of those who hunger, out of sight
Helpless we may feel today
But surely there is some way
That life could be fair
And if we really care
Make the World a better place
On every table with food grace

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
