Are We Still The World?

Filed under: Uncategorized — migueltio @ 8:51 am

Not just Ethiopia

not just them

not anymore

not like then

we are now struggling

we are needing

we are lacking

suffering

bleeding.

Maybe our giving

is now closer

to our neighbor

to our friend

to our co-worker

who daily

stress

and labor

to find survival

on our own soil

while the American Povert Pot

continues to boil.

No matter how

we choose to give

let us keep our hearts

and pockets open

as we budget more

as we plan

let us still be

The World

to a needy child

woman

or man

let us still make

a brighter day

so they know

that its Christmastime

at all.
