Drugs War And Hate - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Do I see
What nobody else can see
Is it just me
or is the world going down

The wars
The drugs
The hate
Do we want our children
to see what we have to flee

Do I want
My child to see
The drug crazed eyes
The drug talk banter
of someone who is high
Hiding behind a lie
Thinking it's all fine

Do I want
My child to see
The pain and the hate
that war can bring
The losing of sight
The loss of life and limb

No

I want
My child to see
Love happiness and peace

    The hallucinating drugs are fashionable nowadays and the children get hooked to it easily, as the authorities are too democratic... (Report)Reply

    As a loving father, you want to bequeath to your children, a world without wars, drugs
    and other evils which scare the people all over the world. God has given you a good heart. Cheers!
