I am all of those

Even full
Bites of hunger eat my guts
382221_507191432664674_939456790_n
Clad with soft and silky garments
I feel bare, no clothes can veil
11278_416936021722548_386247883_n
Wrapped up cosy in a home so warm
My shivering bones are bitterly cold
164414_477834228945338_970841835_n
Snug and secure in my serene abode
In constant fear… ever terrorized
420973_366121533470664_1096003377_n
No health problems or complaint
Yet throbbing pains tear me apart
30764_371305179615010_1423946286_n
This being within is not only me
But all of those who roam the earth
Longing to be loved
Yearning to be Seen
150802_10151693345845760_566881652_n
No warmth … No shelter
No wealth… No health
No food … No haven
Fleeting in stealth
Longing to be loved
Yearning to be Seen
547098_318623368220481_1053828943_n
When a child lies in bed with hunger
When a baby dies for a droplet of water
When tots are torn with drones to pieces
Hearts of angels burst into flames… blazing fire
Souls of prophets split asunder
Heaven cries with rage and thunder
535945_375206665920350_1066953205_n
Wait man… wait
God postpones… Never ignores
309396_169868649759664_293899723_n
Closing your eyes pretending not to see
God’s eyes neither snooze nor go to sleep
Tenderly caressing fathers who mourn
Watching over mamas who weep
39
NO… No escape
We are all to blame
No lame excuse can wash our shame
488097_513172298735781_672588093_n
Don’t get me wrong, no offence intended
But truth can hurt and may even kill
540541_313890352027116_954637536_n
Gazing in the abyss while staying still
No longer an option… You have got a will
377748_457920624280032_2075327321_n
Don’t go far searching for the truth
Look only inside, you’ll find it near within
Open your heart and sing my song
Praise the Sublime and join along
422226_338459082903576_524431773_n
Yes I am indeed all of those
Who roam the earth
Fleeting in stealth
Longing to be loved
Yearning to be seen
Don't Plant Anything But Love
