By Hadel S. Ma’ayeh Poem from “FROM THE HEART” A Journey of Love
A poor man pilfers because he is in need
A rich man pilfers because of his greed.
A revolution of hatred to awareness
A revolution of ignorance to wakefulness.
The lonely ask why the severity
Those with envy ask why the empathy.
Fortitude for the destitute
Solitude for the multitude.
A child cries boisterously from the hunger
A woman cries boisterously from the torture.
Prayers for the unfed and the abandoned dead
Prayers for the forlorn and the unborn.
Prayers for the just and the unjust
Prayers for dignity and humanity.
