This is Poverty

I love to see how we’re all given the same assignment – to write from the perspective of a sponsored child, and yet we all do it in different ways. A great piece of writing here from Juli. 🙂

Sheep Droppings

Listless days

Miserable nights

Constant noise

Danger around

 

Rumbling belly

Parched throat

Unmet needs

Hunger, thirst

 

Hopelessness

Unfulfilled dreams

Fear of failure

Struggling daily

 

Disbelief

Insecurity

Worthlessness

Feeling trapped

This is Poverty

Purpose, meaning

Restful nights

Peace

Safety

 

Nutrition

Clean water

Basic needs met

Satisfied

 

Hopeful

Dreaming big

Success

Fulfillment

 

Trust

Security

Feeling worthwhile

Released and free

This is Compassion
