am I a cheat


No food for days

I fed the World children

am I Hungry

no water for days

I watered the world plant

am I Thirsty

never seen beyond poverty

Alleviation of poor I did

am I Poor

never learned

I taught the world to be wise

am I Ignorant

never been able to see

I showed the world to see

am I Blind

never knew where to search

been showing world to find

am I forgetful

I never had what I gave

The world gained on me

Am I a cheat

Forget me now for I live forever
