Hungry Eyes

Hungry eyes look up, pleadingly

Eyes that once were filled with joy

Are now lined with sorrow and pain

The question asked by these innocent eyes

Is heartbreaking and clear:

Will you be bringing me something to eat today?

If our eyes are the windows to our souls

Why are so many coldly closed off

To the plight that surrounds us

The bountiful blessings and richness of life

That has so freely been placed in our hands

Has become an afterthought to many

"Please sir, may I have some more?"

Is the common refrain

In these days of excess and materialism

A pervading theme lingers in the air

Out of sight, out of mind

If I do not see the suffering

How do I know that it's out there?

The little that I may have

Cannot possibly make any difference

It would be a drop in the bucket

An insignificent amount

In the grand scheme of things

We may not have the power ourselves

To take five loaves of bread

And a few small fish

To feed the multitudes

But I know someone

Who would be perfect for the job!

The task at hand may seem unreachable

But we can do everything through Him who gives us strength

Brian Sweeney
