Haiku Challenge Day 18

Want, hunger, famish,
blessed from ravenous demand,
words I do not know.

Others less lucky,
they must receive our bounty,
Giving more, I pray.

Not pray with words but
entreat the heart to do good,
in generous deed.

We must, we must do
for all craving sustenance,
what we can, today!

Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 - Day 18 – February 18th – Theme or Word: Famine

Words (prayers) without actions are pointless. Great reinforcement.
