Hunger is the want or scarcity of food which has been aggregated to the world level.
Of the 6.8 billion world population about 925 million i.e. 13.6% are hungry.
Poor nutrition plays a role in at least half of the 10.9 million child deaths each year.
Under nutrition magnifies the effect of every disease, including measles and malaria.
We need to give more than just a concern for the cause.
The infected subsistence of hope alone
may not suffice to help me stand.
My prayers are null and I know of no God,
spoken of words so virtuous and grand.
I’ve begged for the mercy of fate itself
for a loaf of bread or the eventual end.
Excruciating mirages of empty anticipations.
Nightmares and reality thoroughly blend.
My resolve is still not shattered
but how do I face my children, dying.
Their helpless father carries them in ache.
On the pyre, burning alive, I see them lying.
How do I tell them stories so true,
of glowing peace and satiated needs.
He has seen cruelty of no reason alone.
Age five – how wrong were his deeds?
We are the same like you all.
Made of the same blood and heart.
Perhaps, I have paid for all our sins.
As humanity and sense drift apart.
