''Who Will Help The Widow's Son?''

''Who Will Help The Widow's Son?''

A Poem by Dwayne J. Keeves

I am left in a world of destitute. All have forsaken; Yes even the earth has fallen from under my feet.
The stars of haven has forgotten to shine on me. Even the golden sun flees at my being.
Who Will Help The Widow's Son?

The earth has become my enemy. Even the beast of the field has made prey of me. My journey from
city to city is but, the dust under my feet. Why must I linger in further dismay?
My suffering is not seen nor; my cries heard. Who Will Help The Widow's Son?

Is there not one who careth that I perish? The rant of the ages consumes my soul. Much like unto
the rivers where rain refuse to fall; Thus I dry up, and made empty. The world has become my life
long burden although from her dust were I conceived. The fruit thereof has been forbidden of me.
Woe unto me that wonders as one lost in the wilderness.

Have you not heard of ''The Widow's Son?'' Are you not his brother or even such as he? His stress has 
become yours. His basket you must fill. He must not stand alone in a world so cold.
Draw the riches of the land at his feet, that he may know what is all kind and sweet.
Who will at last; help the Widow's Son?

Prophet Muhammad extorted the Moslems to protect and feed the orphans. He was orphaned at childhood so he knows the pain well. The society has the responsibility to care for the orphans as well as the widows.
