Empty Struggles

by Brenda L Lewis

Endless are the pains, poor and struggling peoples wear.
Mad are the perpetual wars adding to their world despairs. 
Purposeless is the hunger and suffering an empty caldron wields.
Tattered jewels of earthen clay collapse on the global desert fields.        . 
Yearning for their peace, food and water, more compassion, and good will.

Acrostic Poem: Empty Struggles remembers the crisis, hunger, 
and genocide in Darfur Sudan! Hunger is purposeless to the hungry. 
Many jewels of the world (men, women, and children) 
live with war and hunger every day.
