I am all of those

Even full
Bites of hunger eat my guts
Clad with soft and silky garments
I feel bare, no clothes can veil
Wrapped up cosy in a home so warm
My shivering bones are bitterly cold
Snug and secure in my serene abode
In constant fear… ever terrorized
No health problems or complaint
Yet throbbing pains tear me apart
This being within is not only me
But all of those who roam the earth
Longing to be loved
Yearning to be Seen
No warmth … No shelter
No wealth… No health
No food … No haven
Fleeting in stealth
Longing to be loved
Yearning to be Seen
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
Wait man… wait
God postpones… Never ignores
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
NO… No escape
We are all to blame
No lame excuse can wash our shame
Don’t get me wrong, no offence intended
But truth can hurt and may even kill
Gazing in the abyss while staying still
No longer an option… You have got a will
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
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
