I write what I feel…




Water … cool, clean and clear,
The lifeblood of all.
Or dirty, murky, muddy, cloudy,
Leading to mortality, fatality.

Why is it then that it’s allowed
To be contaminated, tainted,
Infected, polluted,
Causing death and disease?

Is it ignorance, negligence,
Carelessness or rashness?
Is it sloppiness, heedlessness,
Inattention, imprecision or plain disregard?

Water is essential for life on Earth.[3] Water usually makes up 55% to 78% of the human body.[4]

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. It’s the ruthless stupidity of mankind.


  2. Aren’t people/governments daft? They certainly don’t have the interests of humanity at heart let alone their own countrymen!


  3. Its greed… plain and simple greed that makes people kill of nature in the name of advancement. Its a sad day for humanity when money becomes more important than the very life-blood that feeds this earth… 😦


  4. I’m afraid you’re right, Lydatjie. Our civilisation is going down the tubes because of greed.


  5. there are affordable solutions. i’m working on one of them.
