I appreciate…

"I appreciate my dish even though it aint hot...For i have seen families with an empty pot" Mogadishu, Somalia 2011

Mogadishu, Somalia 2011

I appreciate…

I appreciate dry bread
For millions forgot how it feels to be fed

I appreciate that slice of tomato
 For its value only the hungry will know

I appreciate that bowl of rice
For a hungry child, even a lil will suffice

I appreciate that dish with less salt
For babies die of hunger, and its not their fault

I appreciate yesterday’s lunch
For poverty in Africa, has caused my brothers to walk hunchd

I appreciate my dish even though it aint hot
For I have seen families with an empty pot

O Allah, i appreciate your provision despite  my sins
For i have seen children search in bins
