Starving Nations

Poem By Lovina Sylvia Chidi

Blessed with abundance of land
I simply cannot undertstand
the uniform sufferring
calling on global humanity

Struggling nations
without a decent education
Multipying populations
being forced out of their cities
by war and invasion

Starving Children
Parents cradling them in distress
The land is barren
from wars and famine
which are countless
There is simply no easy way
out of this mess

Starving nations
Third world nations
Years of little or no rain
have put a huge strain
on the government

Relief agencies
leading the way for a good cause
Yet there are those of us
who can afford to give a toss

So Alone!

So alone in my bed
Alone listening to nightly whispers
Alone in my thoughts
Alone standing in court

A Marriage Of Two

A marriage of two
is for love that is true

A marriage of two

Kiss Me Slowly

Kissing is an art, one most master
Kissing slowly is better than faster

Kiss me slowly

Thank You, Mom

Thank you Mom
Thank you Mom
