Herbs - Poem by ali chukwuemeka

Herbs were made by god
Purposely for human use
It serves as a source of cure
To those who are disease afflicted
It has also served
As an integral part of a recipe
For cooking a delicious and irresistible
Intriguing aroma food

I sometimes feel indignation
At the way we africans
Make use of our god giving treasure
Millions of herbs lies on
Our nutrition filled lands
We use them in a negative
Way some kill and cause destruction
Of lives with the use of herbs
Which I thought should be
An instrument for the invention
Of life saving drugs

God has giving herbs to us
It is left for us to define its use
No matter which way we use
Positively I think it should be

    Excellent write, very informative details concerning herbs and how they're being used. It's a shame that they are being left in the fields like that, instead of being used for the good of humanity! Here in the U.S. many people are now growing their own herbs and spices, along with gardens of vegetables, and fruit trees, it has become too expensive to buy them at the stores now. Many churches are growing these types of foods also, then once a week anyone can go and buy 60 pounds of whatever they have harvested for $10.00. People go halves on them to save money. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
