Sorrows of a dry land

Sorrows of a dry land
Where hunger and thirst
Have no end
The heat on winter
Doesn’t get better but hotter
People don’t drink 
But rather miss water
Plants keep dying
But non keep growing
Rivers keep drying
With no rain to keep flowing
Birds and animals die
And get melted by the heat
Worms don’t feed
But swim in their meat
People grow thin
Having nothing to eat
The land get shaved
Into a wide bald field
Ruthless winds come
With no trees to shield 
People lose some
If not all of their property
And the road is paved
For the merciless poverty

    This is a wakening for those content in their times of happiness, it is not the same everywhere and thank you for reminding us Daniel

    I can feel the lament of this write. In the "Bible" in the book of Judges it is written at the very end that there were no judges to rule the land and everyone did what was right in their own eyes. Then the next book"Ruth" says there was famine in the land. So many times before destruction there is a separation from God then comes the famine. Of course, I do not know what country you are referring and if that was the case or if this is a metaphoric for something else. Keep the pen flowing. SK

    What a heartfelt poem. nature can be so cruel at times. I wrote one about a drought but this conveys all the searing heat and starvation. To make the reader feel emotion is proof of a well written work.....Margaret
