Does It Matter To People that We go To Bed Hungry At Night?

Updated on March 2, 2013

Does It Really Matter to People That We Go To Bed Hungry At Night?

Does It really matter to people we go to bed hungry at night ?

I can't study my lessons, the electric company shut off the light.

I can't invite anyone to our house ,we have no food to share ,

Does anyone know our problems or does anyone really care?

I try to do my very best in everything that I try to say or do

I want to survive and try to help all of the other children too.

Childhood is supposed to be fun so I put on a happy face.

Being poor is never easy but it should never be a disgrace!

There are so many kids like me around this old world today

Through no fault of their own do not have a place to stay.

There are so many of them with no place to lay their head.

With not even a tiny little shack or even a worn out old bed.

On.Lord, from Your home on high You see us down here.

Can you see us suffering so and can You feel our fear?

The rich man's children don't know what we go through.

Now There is no safe place left for us but to come to You.

I know how You loved them so,the children all around.

And Peace and Love and Solace in You they truly found

But now You are forbidden to teach or even be a part.

You are not supposed to even be in a little child's heart

I know what is coming soon in the Bible it is written there,

Of the destruction of the people and of the utter despair.

Can You help us,Dear Lord,in each step we take today,

Will You fill our heart with Peace as we kneel and pray?

When or if I live to make it through childhood into man,

I will do all that I am able to and help in every way I can.

I want to be able to stand and not bow to Him in shame,

I want Him to know! I am truly His when He calls my name !

Clara Kish


Back when we were children we did not have

all of the problems that the young ones have

now ,we could have never imagined the things

the children have to put up with, No one

would have ever thought the children would

not even be safe in their schools.At times it

must seem like the whole world has gone mad.

The children aren't safe ,the teachers are not

safe either, They took God out of everything

and gave free rein to Satan, what a trade

that was,Now we have total disaster.Only

God could help us now ,but why should he?

      Dear Karen,thank you for your comment and yes, I am sure you see a lot of hungry children and it probably breaks your heart when you do. We see pictures o n TV of them from all over and you wonder why people don't do more for them but we realize that everyone does not have the means to help. Then we will have to pray that someone will step forward and give the help that they are able to. It is hard to see the little ones suffer from hunger as well as the other problems in this day. We all need to pray more. Love,Clara

      Hello dear Clara, Thank you for being a voice for God's children. It really does make ones heart ache. And I see so much of it in Africa and there is only so much one can do as an individual here where the need never seems to end. But Jesus. He knows. He sees. And we as His children must each do what we can. Amen.

      Hello Debbie, thank you for your nice comments, I appreciate every one that I receive .Sometimes I put some on here that I think maybe people will like and I do not get comments back , other times it seems like quite a few people do ,just never know if it will go over or not . I am not really trying to please people though. God gives me the most of my ideas in the night, when it comes to me I have to get up and write ,if I don't by morning I have no idea what it was. I just know that I must write the message that He gives me ,He knows more what I should write then I do . Do you lose sleep at night like I do ? Maybe most people that write do . Good to hear from you ,Clara

      Thank you ,Bravewarrior, for your comment, I am glad that you liked it.It is so sad to think of so many children go hungry in a land where we have had an abundance of food and other items that The Lord had supplied . We have been a spoiled nation that has forgotten the Lord and all of His goodness to us. Now they are trying to take God out of all of us but that will never work . Satan knows it but he keeps trying every way that he can think of.And it is right that He can't be taken out of our heart unless we want Him to go . Clara

      Dear Faith, Thank you so much for your comments and for your vote. I was not sure how this would go over but I just felt that I had to do it. I didn't know until a few years ago that our county is one of the poorest,of course by now that could have changed ,my grandson was in school and the teacher was trying to collect food for the food pantry. My daughter-in-law and I took some sacks of food there and the teacher said later that we was the only people that did. I didn't realize till then how bad it was . My grandson stayed overnight with a friend and all they had to eat was Ramon noodles. It is so sad that this country is always sending help to all of the countries while we have people starving here, especially little children ,it is heartbreaking ,it is time for a change.Love, Clara

      This is a very powerful message telling it like it is. They may have taken prayer from the schools but they can't take it from our hearts. As long as our children are taught God and to talk to Him, they can talk silently regardless of what restrictions are placed on them.

      Very profound poem here Clara!!! It is so very sad for the children, especially. I know of a wonderful organization, "Compassion International," where they do just that, help children all over the world to help prevent them from growing hungry, etc. But, each and every one of us can do our little part to make this world a little bit better place in which to live. It is our choice. And that is a great question!

      Voted Way Up to the heavens ++++ and sharing

      I will check with Bill aka billybuc to see if he will post this on the H.O.W. (Humanity One World) website.

      God bless you always. In His Love, Faith Reaper
