Hunger!

A haiku poem in response to ronovanwrites weekly haiku challenge # 225, using the prompt words hunger & Strike

children-2876359_960_720

The wait is long

the clock strikes on oblivious

to worldly issues

 

hungry mouths implore

the eyes scan for a morsel

starving stomachs groan

 

each day a struggle

against tears and hunger

a forlorn saga.

      Yes Megala, gratitude and a feeding hand is all it takes to satiate the hunger pangs of a lesser fortunate person.

    Very well written. Speaks of the poverty and hunger prevailing in our world when the leaders are busy fighting about immigrants, creed and color.
