The Weight of the World (poem by me)

I asked myself:
How can I eat salmon
when children have no rice?
How can I buy something new
when they are almost nude?

I heard someone say:
Do for one what
you would do for all.

So I clothed one child,
and gave him bread.
He managed a grin
and then I did too.

The weight of the world
is off of my shoulders.
Now tell me, good sir,
How about you?

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” —Luke 6:31
