Bare cupboard, empty wallet, medical test. Lost direction, upset stomach, holy fast. In the midst of my hunger I ponder, How many resources we squander. Life is consumed in daily excesses, That never bring eternal successes. The most precious jewel is a soul, Who with trust in God can be whole. Destroying or ignoring a gemstone, Both remove God from the throne. Reality belongs to the astute few, Who though full have hunger in view.
