time to give

time to give
i saw two men shuffling along the path
my breath froze in the air
i knew my cold hands would be warm soon enough
theirs would not
it is peaceful, the echo of gunshot is nonexistent
i am not floating in a raft holding my child
i am not starving
i have so many clothes
my tummy is full and overfull and
my tongue is slippery with fat and spices
it's time to give
so many have nothing
i have everything.
