Why won’t you reach?

Food served to you on a silver platter

All you have to do is eat

Yet you won’t take a bite

It even seems that you put up a fight


Golden spoon in your mouth

With all life glories at your feet

But why oh why won’t you eat


You turn your head in dismay

as you starve and fall anyway

Although there is a faint willingness

with every gaze and breath

your eyes see the gold and the silver

Yet your hands do not reach


Is it lack of self-love

or my failure to teach

Food served on platter of gold

with a silver spoon in your mouth

yet you do not reach

No matter how much I preach

As we Both suffer

You and I

Please Reach
