Water… it is something most take
for granted, when they have it,
worth its weight in gold.
water… when you don’t have it, you
need to: clean, cook, wash and
bathe- within your fold.
Water… saved in rain barrels,
taken as dew… precious to
life itself, moisture sold.
Water… needed by us all but
isn’t it time to bring resources
to the world or remain cold?
Water… without it all life stops,
to much and we gain mildew…
mildew left us to mold,
water… clamor for those without,
care for it to be throughout the
world, United and bold.
There comes a time when some would say protect it (water) but who are we protecting when not everyone has equal and open access to this precious life giving resource? Thus, our method(s) of preserving water aids to further alienation from something we all deserve… clean drinking water. If the United Nations is ‘United’… let them act like they are, and pave the way to actions becoming of such common basic needs such as “Clean water for every human being.” Play politics with what you will but deny not one human being basic Rights to: clean water, believe as one sees fit (for themselves… without hurting another) and act ‘United’ for a common need as it should have been all along.
