Today Must Read Poems!

Rating: 5 out of 5.


If hunger had a heart
May, it could spare me,
I, a bare hope of life,
Living in a cracked house,
Whose foundation,
Is the bleeding palms of mum.

If hunger had eyes
Maybe, it could see my child’s bones,
Whose blanket is always cold,
And wet to make life walk.

If hunger had ears
To hear my child’s fading voice,
Whose tears scream at me
“Listen! John
Hunger knows no rights,
Neither peace nor freedom,
Hunger knows no life,
The only thing hunger knows,
Is the language of an empty stomach.
