SOL#DAY 13-Too little and too much!

The world, with its bounty and plight,

Too much for some, too little, not right.

For the boy who lost his eye, a sorrowful sight,

While the board pays for ammo, their wallets alight.


Too little for the girl with blistered feet,

Walking miles for water, a desperate beat,

Yet too much for the company, in their seat,

Using gallons while she faces defeat.


The young widow of war, left alone to mourn,

Too little from a world where pain is born,

Yet too much for the tank, its metal torn,

In the chaos of battle, futures shorn.


Too much and too little, a constant strife,

Wearing peace thin, costing precious life.

Let's add a little to those in need's pleas,

For what the world craves is tranquility's ease.

Nadia, your poem is pointing at such a need, to rebalance our abundant resources to ensure every human has what they need. Your rhyme scheme for each stanza felt intense, as if it was driving home your message - intense in a good way!

Nadia, your rhyming and rhythm are spot on in this heart-wrenching poem. Too much and too little. Oh, how I wish we could be more equitable. Thank you for shining your light on the people who are suffering so much. Thank you, Nadia.
