Glimpse

Glimpse

Peep by the window

Slight utterance of complaint

How could I let down?

 

Placid hush of home

A domicile dwelling place

Complex as a dome.

 

Graceful ornament

A plant that makes a home

Serenity meant.

 

The throes of a man

Moving with difficulty

For greatness be done.

 

Every man’s combat

To hassle destituteness

Poverty attack.

Majority of the world’s people and nations are living in poverty level. Why? Can we blame poor people for their own problems? What is wrong with them? Have they been lazy? Have they made poor decisions? Are they solely responsible for their plight?

Most of humanity lives on just a few dollars a day. Whether you are in the wealthiest nations in the world or the poorest, there is high levels of inequality.

Can we do something to help alleviate the lives of the poor? It may sound so good to be true, but; yes…. we can.

At this point of the year for most Christians, they commemorate the life and death of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, who they believed have saved them from their sins. And for most Christians they commemorate it by making certain sacrifices. Traditionally, they fast. By fasting it means they refrain from eating meat during Fridays starting off during Ash Wednesday. But others do more than just fasting. They make sacrifices. Sacrifices such as, giving alms to the poor…giving away things that they have not been using…helping the needy…feeding the poor… You see if we all do the same even just once for every year, then maybe, just maybe, we may not be able to eradicate poverty, but in a way we will be able to alleviate the lives of the poor even for just once in every year…Who knows, it might signify the beginning of the end of their suffering.

P.S.

Here’s wishing you all that you find time to check out your neighborhood and find a way to make someone happy by giving away something you don’t need anymore.
