Something to think about…

There are millions of children that did not eat breakfast this morning

There are millions of children that have no book to read in class

There are millions of children that are sick but do not have enough money to see a doctor or have the option to pay a co-pay

There are millions of children that go to a school that has no room in the budget for a pencil or a pen

There are millions of children that live with all of their siblings in a studio apartment

Missing one or both parents

Waiting on the organization to sort through some clothes that we donated to make absolute sure that they cannot sell them

Speaking of things that get thrown into the trash

I wonder if everyone brought a few extra cans of food or their extra vegetables over to the food bank

Think about it
Think about it again
Now think about it again

It is not the Republican’s fault
It is not the Democrat’s fault
It is not the Independent’s fault

They have known about this problem for over 2000 years and no one has done a thing

It is only my fault for not writing this poem the day that I heard of this all

We must not fight about the world anymore

We must erase the problems that we caused by complaining about everyone else’s faults

The only fault is our own

We must correct ourselves
And the future will begin to grow
I thank you from the bottom of my heart
We needed to have this talk
We must give the next generation
A chance to learn from us all

Stop disturbing the young
Stop disrupting their growth

Change yourself

Until then
Do not waste your breath trying to speak for us all
