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
