Hunger


It is always there with you. The feeling that drives us to edge of life. The feeling that drove us to live. Never disappearing. Only could be calmed. Worse than pain, deadlier than poison, its the fundamental need of all living forms.

Whatever it may be,

A plant,
An animal,
An insect,
or
A human
 THERE IS NO ESCAPE...

Why am I writing this? I don't know. I just felt like it. I can sit here and munch on McDeluxe and pretend everything is okay. But its not. Life is not that simple. I am not that ignorant. Why am I blessed with this food? Is it because my ancestors made a right decision to immigrate? Is it because my earns well enough to afford my allowance? Is it because god have his mercy on me? It may be cause all of them.
I always wonder, why some arent as lucky as me? Why are they not as blessed? Could not afford? If the whole world have mercy, not only a country, but A whole continent can be fed. But why don't they? Yes, they too seem to hunger. Not for food, but for wealth, for leisure, for entertainment, for ignorance.
All their hunger chose to avoid the responsibility. A responsibility to be a human.
Life yes, may not be simple... but it is not that complicated. We dont thrive to survive, we are thriving to live. So what about those who just want to survive? Why not we grab them away from hell they are in.


 They dont desire taste, they dont demand fine dining... They just desire food. Did god did this to them? God did nothing. We did this. We did all of what it is right now. So why not? Why not change it?

A man is not meisured by his car, condo or cash. He is measured by his heart. He is measured by his care. No matter who you are, on with a caring heart, you can be a "someone".


What did he do? To deserve a cruel fate? Just a mere child. 

Is leisure that important that humanity to be forgotten? Is the need to command and conquer necessary when there are victims of lives?

We only seem to care when someone asked too, and look at the television and feel pity for what we see... but how many take action to make a change? 

Think. 

Why are we here?

  2. Thank you! for your awareness somehow people in power will now be aware of what is really happening down stairs. That they should focus regarding this matter and stop arguing about unfinished issues of non-sense that waste resources and gone to nothing...hope they will put focus on the issue on poverty and scarcity.

  4. What you said really made me think and I felt mixed emotions of anger and sympathy when I saw those pictures. I understand why you think this but may I ask, what we possibly do?
    Thinking about it is one thing but actually taking action on this subject is what we need.
    Thank you
