Wake up!

Broken dreams
Shattered pieces
Unbearable pain
And unspeakable reality.

We live in a world
Engulfed by pain
Yet all turn a blind eye
As though it’s not a concern.

Girls raped by known
And unknown faces
Boys driving to kill
Or abusing drugs or drinks.

Women living in distress
Men bogged by finances
Children lose their innocence,
No relief to anyone.

Parents dumped out of homes
Left to be on their own
Old age homes for their perusal
How selfish, their child has become.

Wars with blood shed as water,
Water needs to be saved and preserved
Bodies bombed and torn flesh around
All for the sake of power and dominance.

Wake up, O fellow humans
Before humanity dies
Wake up before all is lost
And you sit empty handed.

S.F.R.
