Think of others


When you get ready for the morning food
think of others.
don’t forget to throw sprinklings for the pigeons.
Even in wars think of others
Don’t forget those who want peace.
While you pay water bill, think of others
Don’t forget those who only have clouds to drink from.
While you go home, think of others
Don’t forget those without a home living in tents.
While you sleep counting the planets, think of others
there are those without a place to sleep.
While you think the world in metaphors, think of others
there are those who lost the right to speak.
While you think of distant others and see to yourself
Only say: If I could be a candle in the the dark!
