What’s hunger? They asked me

By Dania Ajour

Age 11  – 14

What’s hunger? They asked me.
A fierce enemy, I said, he eats the hungry ones’ veins with greed,
Tears their hearts apart into painful pieces until they bleed
Takes the colours out of their lives,
Fills their heads with questions; Where can we find refuge?
It’s a barrier between life and hope.
Wish for him to leave me and them alone,
Cause I am one of them and they are part of me.
