Starved Stomachs

Starved Stomachs

A Poem by Raj Sahu
"

This poem shows the dark side of humanity and the bad effect of poverty.

"



The eyes were constantly searching,
Searching for the food to quench the appetite.
But the stony passers were ignoring
the hungry mouths, imagining of a bite.

Poverty has become an antagonist,
In the story of starved stomachs.
Each character and himself the protagonist
Just thinks and their thumbs they suck.

The eyes shed bitter tears
And their hearts complained to the Lord,
"O Almighty! Are we lacking in prayers
or had done the deeds so abhorred?"

Unbeatable crying, but still lives the hope
And it will live until breaks the life's rope.

Very moving
Hunger seems to be all around us where ever we live and travell
Old people here
Do they spend money on eating or Heating
They live in cold houses temperatures below freezing wearing hats, coats and gloves.

A very sad poem. It is real in our world. Many people are dying of starvation. Few organizations helping the needy. Thank you for sharing the powerful words and thoughts.

You are welcome.
This is one of the best ones of yours that I've read so far. I did not notice any glaring grammar issues. It reads smoothly thru-out & expresses a strong social statement presented with clarity & good imagery. I felt as if I were the one walking & turning my face away so I didn't have to see this suffering.

The words bleed raw and painful, as do the subjects. "Starved stomachs" "the stony passers were ignoring the hungry mouths, imagining of a bite". So many babies dying, suffering. You eloquently describe the hellish scene. I pray their hope will prevail.

Great writings. Grammer can be not all that important the main thing is to tell it how it is and this is what your writing and image are able to achieve here

No kid in this world should be starving.
It is a stain on humanity.
