A short poem about the rich and poor of the world, and how giving makes you feel so great, also I ask the question why are we not doing more !

Giving Gifts

Giving gifts makes me glow,
Makes my heart just want to grow,
Many homeless in the land,
Makes me want to give a hand,
Many people live in strife,
Wishing for a better life.

I`m not rich, I`m not poor,
Always looking for a little more,
All the less I do try,
Help the needed to get by,
Richer people help much less,
`Cos they have a different stress.


Rather Give

Giving money is no good,
Rather give a little food,
Homeless people in the rain,
Makes me feel a little shame,
Wish I had a little wealth,
To house and bring a little health.

The world is split in two you know,
As the population always grows,
Some have food that is plenty,
Many have their larders empty,
So many people that are poor,
We need to do a little more.
