What Needs Have I?
Poem By Denis Martindale
Beyond this home, this land, this sea,
The starving starve and die,
For want of food from you and me,
If we should pass them by...
And pass them by we do each day,
Our needs considered first,
Because of us they pass away,
Unblessed as if they're cursed...
Their thirst condemns them when they drink
The tainted droplets there,
Diseased with things we daren't think,
Because life isn't fair...
No future beckons those dismissed,
No hope springs in their hearts
And if their fate we won't resist,
We'll watch as each departs...
Is this the world we would aspire?
Is this our pride and joy?
Is this the dream we would desire
For every girl and boy?
Is this the reason Hell awaits,
The selfish souls on Earth?
The ones who always have full plates,
As if their right of birth?
To think, starvation can be cured,
Clean water can be shared,
If human kindness is outpoured,
Then millions will be spared...
If not, our blindness grows and grows,
Like darkness when we die
And so I ask, each day, God knows...
What needs, what needs have I?
