Enjoy Poetry & Save Lives


Once again, I am so happy to let you know that my e-book “Do Lend Me Your Ears” is finally available on my website (the physical copy can be found on AmazoDo Lend Me Yr Ears Amazon E-book 50 conn). Please click on the nearest cover photo to read the book’s blurb.

This e-book version is really close to my heart because:

  • Amazon’s e-book formatting is quite plain – the e-book you’ll find here looks much better;
  • 100% of the e-book proceeds (from my website) will go to aid the work of a charity called King’s Ransom Foundation 🙂

One of the reasons why I chose this charity is that all of their public donations go directly to the people who need them (their operational expenses are completely funded by a private corporation).

 The charity provides:

  • Food, housing, and safe water to the poorest of the world’s poor.
  • Shelter for abused women and children.
  • A way out for those trapped in slavery and the sex trades.
  • Relief for disaster victims.
  • Care for widows and orphans around the world.

Let’s enjoy poetry & support those in need, together. Please purchase the e-book here.

Living in these mighty houses

Warm & sheltered from the rain

We spend precious moments striving

… for financial gain…

.

Then, we spend & waste, again

.

There’s not much we need,

There’s so much we want…

Many Lives are typed by strangers

In a fancy, heavy font…

.

We take so much space on Earth

Like the world’s page isn’t theirs

It belongs to us alone!

Let’s throw them a bone

.

In this land, if a man can’t hear,

a custom device is placed in his ear –

It restores the sense of sound.

So why there, on the other hand,

Cries for help are drowned out?

It’s a not so privileged land.

.

So why don’t we smile?

As much as we could…

We have stored a lot of wealth

Often, much more than we should…

.

Yes, the world is what it is

And we are what we are…

It takes one unselfish life –

Only One to raise the bar.

.

So, whose life will it be?

So, who is the One?
