Poverty’s End

Mother Teresa together we can do great things

I pray for an end to all poverty

Hope for the poor renewed hope to see

How can we say the economy our number one focus should be

while countless millions in the world live in poverty?

I know.

The solutions seem so few

The problem of poverty is great

It’s still not too late

if we commit to sitting down together both government and community

Use your beautiful mind

for solutions to poverty to find

Can we do any less for those losing hope?

For those who no longer can cope?

Can you look into the eyes of a starving child?

Say for you there’s nothing I can do?

No one should have to choose between having their medications or food

No one should have to choose between paying for their rent or food

No one should be sentenced to a life of joy-stealing poverty

Let’s all work together to show we care

Say by our actions, not merely with our words

that for others in need we’ll be there

If those who are able committed to lifting one person out of poverty

take time to think how much more beautiful this world would be

You would help millions new hope to see

From their poverty they would forever be set free

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
