Pollution of the nation

As I walk on the streets of my home town
I see boys and  girls in small clusters
They are swimming and bathing in alcohol
Swimming and bathing with reckless abandon
From paper and grass they are creating clouds
Inhailing and exhaling clouds that smell to heaven
Oh, how badly then I feel my soul broken
As I think deeply about this
Not because I want to think about it
But because it is feeding on my soul
My vision is stretched beyond the horizon
The future unfold before my eyes
There I see, a nation of drugs and alcohol 
Abuse victims awaits, producers of bitter fruits
A nation with no sign of life but death
A polluted nation with no achievements nor a vision

    war is poison to the soul and the soil its fought on is our own hearts of stone and mental minefields

    This vision is fastly becoming true for so many places of the world but there is hope for those who will take it. The answer lies in a return to God. Keep the creative pen flowing with these wonderful writes. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work. Sara
