Hungry young boy eating.

A Glimpse of Hunger

        "I'm HUNGRY," he roared, and he kicked the wall hard;
        His face was transformed by his rage.
        Such fury contained in a package that small --
        A natty-haired boy only 5 years of age.

        How could I have known he'd not eaten that day,
        Though the afternoon plodded along;
        (My own lunch was tasty, enjoyed long before;)
        I tried to correct him and "show him his wrong."

        I'll never forget that little guy's anger,
        As his mother explained their sad state;
        He couldn't understand why their table was bare;
        He only knew that his hunger was great.

        Please God, reach down and love others through me,
        And give me discernment for every day
        So I can do something to make their lives bright
        And help them to see You along their way.

          "I was hungry, and ye gave me food;
          I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink;
          I was a stranger, and ye took me in..........
          Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of
          the least of these my brethren,
          ye have done it unto me."
          (Matthew 25:35 & 40b)
