AFRICA


A continent of extremes
Fraught with hunger though
Rich in natural resources
Inimitable is its peoples' sufferings
Causing my heart
And soul to cry.

  5. This causes my heart and soul to cry to. So much wealth, and still the people go hungry. What kind of world do we live in. Wonderful take on the prompt Amity Me!
