Starvation


No I am not lying
When I tell you people are dying
You see me crying
Because there are so many not trying
You shouldn't be starving when you have an option
There are so many children crying
Because there is no option
Can you hear them asking?
Begging and pleading?
For someone to save them?
Starvation is the reason
There are 2.6 million children
Leaving
every four season
See, every penny counts
Especially when it's something you believe in

So, stop acting like a fool
Wasting food
When it's a tool
In basic survival
For those in need
Now get off your couch and stop feeling sorry
When you can be doing something about it
Don't put it off until tomorrow
Because there might not even be one
For those starving in places like Africa or even your own home
