Close your eyes

Poetry By: Brian Peza Perrins

For all the poor and starving in the world, spare a thought at this time of year when people generally spend high amounts of money on materialistic stuff.

Close your eyes and try to see
The poor and starving, the poverty
Close your eyes and think of this
Nothing left but staring into the abyss
Close your eyes but don't drift away
Think of those with lives in disarray
Close your eyes, why can't you see
The children starving, hear their plea
Close your eyes and thank the Lord
For all the things in life you can afford
Then close your eyes and drift to sleep
Whilst children die and mothers weep
