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
