Moment of Despair
By Munziba Khan
I look at the twinkling stars with a sigh With pain my heart, in bed I lie. Once it was there and now it’s gone What was so alive, now dead and gone. Like a zombie I feel like a living dead. With a heavy heart I feel so dread. I close my eyes, I see the fire. Burning everything in sight, Leaving a view so dire. I try to breathe with a monster in my heart, Which can’t be seen but is sour and tart. In the world, there is so much violence and hate. There is grief and anger trying to control our fate. As experts in deception, They fool themselves often All the lies and deceptions, make life dull and rotten. I hate getting flashbacks For things I don’t want to remember The struggles I have, make my heart so tender. I drown my pain, in the deep ocean of despair. My broken soul is screaming, fighting to grasp fresh air. With eyelids closed, it comes back to me. In sleep I fear, I will not be free. The monster is inside, can’t be seen. Making me feel lost, anxious, trapped and uncertain, Pricking deep into my heart and into my skin. The mask I wear is the one I want you to see. The mask I wear is what you want me to be. I refuse to be what you want me to be. I may not be perfect but I am me. But don't be in fear as there is hope Light glows in each of us that helps us cope. One thing I know, when things goes wrong Life has a reason that makes us strong. I stand with two paths in front of me. I took the path less travelled by, And I know I will be free.

CAUSES CLOSE TO MY HEART

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to my gofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
Help make sure all hungry Marylanders have reliable access to nutritious food when you join Sustainers Circle.
PLEASE DONATION ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic.
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring contents to you.
