Living in Glass Houses|

Leave a comment

When will you get it

You in your fancy glass houses

2 cars parked in the garage

You with your high paying jobs

Medical insurance benefits and 401ks

Plenty of food on the table

No need to ration this week’s food

fasting by choice

while others spend  their days hungry

Plenty of cash in the bank

while others lay awake at night

wondering where they’ll get the money

to pay this month’s rent

Your children have new clothes

and brand named shoes that fit

While others send their children to school

mending tears in their clothes again

duct taping the holes in their worn out shoes

A lifetime of hard work can be lost in a minute

Then what would you do

Author: Cindi Silva Poetry

I'm an artist, poet, writer, activist and more. I like writing about the ordinary and transforming it to extraordinary, which I think it already is but you may have been to busy to notice. Sometimes I write about politics, love, relationships, and every day strife. If you like my blog, I invite you to follow me. Thanks for stopping by. Peace and great joy to you always! Cindi
