Lending a Hand

Starbucks in the morning
Water bottles lay chilling
Sweetened dessert with strawberries.
We are blind to these luxuries
Could anything be more important than our phones?
What if we looked up and saw their bones?
Would we pause Instagram,
And actually give a damn
Please excuse my choice of diction,
I understand that it creates friction.
Some people are without water,
As the earth continues to get hotter.
Yet here we are behind the screen,
So pardon me be being mean.
But united through humanity isn't it our responsibility,
To help those in streets create stability?
So here I am,
Giving you a slam.
Get out of your bubble,
And lend a hand to those in trouble.
