Together

I can feel the pain inside my heart
For the turning of the world upside down
Many people dying now and then
Because of AIDS

Many children living without parents
And they end up becoming street kids
Begging here and there, now and then
Because of no aid

So what shall we do?
In order to fight this scourge
Coz we need to get together
Fighting against AIDS requires unity

AIDS is dangerous
And Deadly
It got no cure
We should be careful
About this disease
Abstinence is the way
For teenagers
And faithfulness for married

The piece is great. AIDS is no respector (wo)man. I'll be glad if everybody was faithful to themselves..

Lindwee,

I am a regular visit to your blog. While I love your spirit and your posts, I am not feeling this particular poem. It is too literal.

While you may argue that the issue calls for it, I am sure you could have done a better job with the language and style to keep it from being so sing-songy.

Keep up the spirit.

lindwee said...

@eddie, absolutely!

@sage, thanks too.

@omutahinga, true! it is lyrical but i decided to keep it short.

@y'all, thanks for visiting and have a lovely weekend.
