A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

No hungered child is a lost soul Nor a beggar be taught how to live By preaching morals to the poor We take from whom we should give

Becky Payton and I

Becky Payton and I


Many men are at times misled


as most could be thought of as blind

Measuring by what they won't do

instead of to whom they were kind


Attempting to build an empire

judging themselves by what they deny

Thinking them best who resist temptation

be it a crime for a man to cry


No hungered child is a lost soul

nor a beggar be taught how to live

By preaching morals to the poor

we take from whom we should give


Goodness is not what we won't do

nor a question of who we exclude

It is an unselfish act of Humanity

to see ourselves in those we include

How many times do we walk by those we could so easily help?

Featured Review

Five stanzas of near perfect poetry. Each stanza is a self-contained lesson (parable) and they are tied together by the title and pictures. The styles of individual lines are consistently interesting (stilted language in some ways, archaic in other ways, but all working together for the overall effect of the theme). And, a good theme - God's work (if you think God needs an apostrophe to help His work, check line 16. Great work on this one.

Kindness is its own reward i say
those people who are in need are ones that are invisible to us. when we walk by them we don't help and we are in denial of how guilty we really feel. it really sucks to be homeless. i could relate.

Good eye-opening piece, Tate. Thanks for sharing.

A wonder way of reminding us the art and act of giving to others and not for benefit to ourselves. I have many times over given to others not asking in return. The reward is intrinsic . Beautiful Poem Tate!

So true, good poem.

First, how much I have missed your verses.
From this, and especially from the third stanza, I thought of what those hungered children and poor could teach us; the reasons why they are placed where they have been, the humility they wear day after day. Not only could we help them, but they could teach us much as well. Wonderful rhymes per usual. Great write.

Terrific poem....

words that people should aspire to read closely, deeply and reflect and improve oneself...
