HUNGER

~ By: Cynthia K. McKinney – 9/12 ~
Hunger has captured me
It has imprisoned me within its walls
I try hard to escape but I am trapped like an animal in a cage
Shacked by the guilt of not having enough food; leaves me not only hunger but empty inside Hunger awaken me each day to just to remind me that it’s still there
Hunger has captured me
It has imprisoned me within its walls
Consuming my thoughts and action rending me hopeless and helpless
Broken and shattered by its pains; I stand
Smiling while silently crying; for I know not where my next meal will come Masquerading each and every day; for you could never understand
Hunger has captured me
It has imprisoned me within its walls
Day after Day; Night after Night
Children are crying; Lord knows I am trying
Payday comes and payday goes
No extra food enters my door
Don’t judge me until you know my story; for we walk same footsteps
My payday may be your payday away from being captured and imprisoned by hunger.
