Water of life


Crystal drops falling from the sky
Bringing life to the dry
Growing plants reach for the sky as they start growing on high
It cures your thirst and cleans the dirt
Water does not choose who is rich or poor, hate or love
It comes from the heavens above sent to us from God with love…

Water in a glass, water in your bath, shower, water in the sea, water in a dam, water in a river and even water in a mother’s womb.

The realization that water is important becomes disrespected
Everyone goes on with everyday life while the water is being infected.

Water may bring life but it can also cut through cities and towns like a knife.
Tsunamis, floods it does not choose who to struck but when it comes you know your...

Take a moment and think to yourself
What water means to your health

Say thank you and stand up for what you believe in as this is one of the only sources of life that cannot be taken away.

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
