Sometimes it seems like we get caught up in a world that is moving at such a fast pace, and everything around you begins to blend together, and we lose focus of what is actually surrounding us. Walking through the streets in the city it is so easy to get swept away in the crowds and not notice those who are in desperate need. With the economic crisis we are are currently facing so many are losing their jobs, homes and it begins to feel like what once was solid ground is collapsing beneath you. Poverty is everywhere.
Astonishing Facts About Poverty
“Almost half the world — over three billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day.”
Below is a poem which I wrote about the inequality of this world.
Of what one place holds
They call, Home!
To be heard
A “standard” of living
Many could not begin to
Takes for granted
Takes so greatly
In their humble hands
“A full world”
For a helping hand
