A Poem From A Potters Field Survivor
You do not have the right to nullify abusive actions by feeding children in other countries.
If you believed what you preach you would know with no uncertainty that God does not need your help.
Let me say it again:
The God you say is so big,
so capable of doing all things,
is the same God you put in a box.
You act as if He needs your means to accomplish His work.
He does not.
Meanwhile, you failed to take care of those who were entrusted to you.
We were used.
We were broken down in every way.
We were manipulated and lied to.
But you act as if that was acceptable
because the kids received a meal.
Tell me how that is okay.
You freely trade one group of humans’ worth for another
As if we aren’t all the children of God.
They are physically hungry, maybe so.
But we were famished spiritually
We were parched emotionally.
The truth of how we were treated is being neglected.
We are being abandoned.
We are ignored in our suffering.
Dear leadership of PFM,
Dear supporters of PFM,
Who put you up on a pedestal-
Who made you as God to choose
which children to feed
And which deserve to starve?
