A Glass of Water

Something we take for granted
a simple glass of water
so many others
unable to drink

Nothing clean
often disease filled
a glass of water
only in their dreams

We need to bear witness
act on our beliefs
that all should have plenty
plenty to drink

A glass of water
shouldn’t be a struggle
a right to all the people
all the people on earth
