Where is that world that my mum described to us !
a world of tolerance, peace love and understanding.
A world devoid of crime killing, Kidnapping and terror
that world has ceased to exist .
My childhood witnessed peace in our time ,
We could go out late to Play with our siblings and friends
while the elders sit in peace as
The watch us Play .
There were less worries , no fear and no suspicion
People were respected, elders had their places and families were
holy and sacred .
Children were thought discipline ,
Mothers cared for the children and took care of homes
Fathers go to work and fend for the Family, Money , Food
Children listened to elders ,
elders lived an exemplary life
Marraiges were sacred and respected,
Men and women behaved themselves
and Family values were kept
Divorce was a taboo word !
Children had intact homes ,
a home that gave them sense of belonging
and direction .
States respected the upbringings of children
and encouraged families,
Families groomed well- behaved children the future
of a Nation.
Leaders were leaders and not corrupt
education was valued and children were sent to School.
religeon was holy and curbed excessess.
Today, that world has ceased to exist,
No respect, no manner, and no value,
Everyone is just doing what he likes,
Computer is taking up functions and the state
is backing the children,
Marriages are breaking,
Many more Kids are in broken homes
The state watch and say nothing
, as the ex wives and husbands plung into
cold war ,
The ex-wife use the children to terrorise the ex-husband .
Children are brought up in this Milieu where the learn, no tolerance, no
respect and do what they like ,
the grow up, with no education or half education ,
but no manner, get into the world unequipped
and unprepared to face an unchanging world !
They breakaway, get into drugs, smoke heavy chains,
carry guns, steal , molest women and are easy Prey for Terror
they get them brainwashed, give them guns to kill
and tie bomb around their waste with a commando
to join the crowd and kill .
this is a Generation that have no Chance
to see what we saw, witness what we did in the past ,
this world is no more .
Where is that our old world ! .
